How to frame a business case

1.8 A different stakeholder framework

The text in the next activity was produced by a student who read a slightly different input text about the stakeholder framework. As a result she framed the case slightly differently. The case study she read is too long to present here but Extract 11 is one page from it.

Activity 21

Purpose: to compare the framing of two stakeholder analyses.

Task: Extract 17 is a student’s stakeholder analysis of a case study about Nike (see Extract 11 for part of this case study). The stakeholder model the student uses is slightly different from the one you have been studying but they are both based on the concepts of power and interest. Compare the organisation and structure of Texts 17 and 16 and make notes on the differences and similarities. Also, identify any language which you think is used to frame the case and justify the categorising.
