Dear all,

It’s warm outside (even warmer than during my vacation last week!). So going for a boat trip may be a great idea. Despite the heat, most of us would probably still prefer the boat not to sink though. Here’s the slightly tongue-in-cheek account of the sinking of the Vasa in the summer of 1628 by Simon Elliston Ball – and what we might learn from it with respect to stakeholder management

More seriously, Graham Kenny’s HBR article Five Questions to Identify Key Stakeholders deals with a typical stakeholder mapping problem by providing 5 questions to help decide which stakeholders are truly key.

Stay cool and have a great weekend,
