It is now well recognized that stakeholder engagement practices require an initial identification stage, before strategies and polices can be developed and employed. This thesis adopts a novel methodological approach which integrates three different perspectives on stakeholder analysis – salience analysis, frame of reference analysis and network analysis – into a multi-perspective framework. This completely new approach to stakeholder analysis, radically extends the fundamental understanding of how stakeholders and problem owners relate to each other within the stakeholder arena. The multi-dimensional stakeholder analysis approach allows the initial problem space to be recast into a more nuanced understanding of the presented problems.
