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.
