Abstract
This research note examines the usefulness of stakeholder analysis (SA) and the stakeholder information system (SIS) for activities within the Department of National Defence. SA is a social science research methodology that emphasizes the importance of social relationship between key stakeholders or stakeholder groups, and their impact on research activities. The SIS is a computer system presently under development at Carleton University that will facilitate and automate SA, by providing researchers or project leaders with a wide array of participatory research techniques. Moreover, using the SIS, members of a research team can share information and project outcomes. The concluding section of the research note discusses three areas of DND activity in which SA and the SIS could be of value; ethics, human resource analysis and quality of life research. These are but three examples from a wide range of DND projects in which SA could be applied.
