Evaluation Stakeholder Analysis (SA) is a technique used to identify and assess the importance of key people, groups, or institutions in the evaluation. It is a systematic way to establish stakeholder interests and needs and generates information that is critical to planning and implementing your evaluation.

Stakeholder analysis helps you anticipate the influence different stakeholders may have on mobilizing support or resistance to the evaluation; as well as the use of evaluation findings and implementation of recommendations. It also helps you provide a foundation and strategy for participation in the evaluation - which often leads to more useful, cost-effective evaluations!
