How to identify stakeholders’ expectations.

In this article, you will learn how Datamaran can help you identify stakeholders’ expectations by stakeholder group.

There are two types of stakeholder engagement tool provided by the Datamaran Materiality module:

  1. Online survey management allows you to consult a broad range of stakeholders on prioritizing your issues.
  2. Issues ranking in the internal view allows you to discuss strategic aspects with a smaller group of decision makers or influential stakeholders.


Datamaran also supports the typical stages of your stakeholder engagement:

  • When you identify and prioritize your material issues.

Challenge or pain point: You want to ensure the correct representation of the stakeholders’ voices, and collect and analyze all the available information.

  • When you integrate your findings into your corporate strategy.
