Social development

Network analytics provides insights into relationships of how stakeholders individually and collectively determine the success or failure of projects. Stakeholder networks are useful for scaling impact of social development interventions. Datamuse network analysis application offers metrics to proactively anticipate stakeholder behavior, design engagement and risk mitigation strategies like -

  • Ability, willingness and incentives to drive desired change
  • Stakeholder positions in the network: the central actors, the intermediaries, opinion leaders, clusters
  • The formal and informal relationships in the network
  • Potential resistance to change.

We have partnered with several social development programs to map the stakeholder landscape, facilitate conversations about complex issues and navigate stakeholder politics in a systematic way.
