- Since your stakeholders are likely to be both internal and external to your organization’s boundaries, it’s a good idea to conduct both an internal and external survey of their unique interests. More than likely the survey questions will vary between internal and external stakeholders. This gives you a more complete picture of your stakeholders satisfaction and enables you to support the key influencers with targeted actions based on your survey outcomes.
- Stakeholder surveys often tell you more for less cost. We recommend that you keep it simple with less than 10 questions that can be answered in less than 10 minutes. If your survey sample size is calculated for a 95% confidence level, you should be able to extrapolate significant insight conducting internal and external surveys on your marketing stakeholders.
