Stakeholder Onion Diagrams

The Stakeholder Onion Diagram is often used as a way to view the relationships of stakeholders to a project goal. The primary difference that separates the onion diagram from other types of diagrams is the focus on the project goal. Most other diagram styles focus on the project, stakeholders, or timeline. In addition to the project goal; supplementary information can be included in the diagram that displays the relationships between stakeholders, as well as to specific “layers” of a defined project.

Most Stakeholder Onion Diagrams are comprised of 4+ layers. The center of the diagram represents the product/solution; each subsequent layer has additional project data that demonstrates the relationships existing in the project environment.

There are no hard fast rules on what must or must not be contained in the stakeholder diagram. The key value of the Stakeholder Onion Diagram is to show the relationships that lead to a successful final product or deliverable. The Stakeholder Onion Diagram is intended to map out how projects are impacted by influence, support, or other KPI project metrics.

A basic Onion Diagram contains a rich information. It shows significance of stakeholders that will have has influence to the success achievement of the final product. The biggest benefit is the stakeholder analysis that pass after creating a diagram. Also, there could be risk to make a mistake with relationships importance between stakeholders on the Onion Diagram. However, it emphasizes the project stakeholders that is often disregarded by other diagram tools.
