Research of stakeholder management in Valli member associations
Research from the development challenges of stakeholder management in Valli member associations was made in December 2010. The research was conducted by Pirjo Puhakka from Efetto Ltd. as a part of her Master of Business Administration (MBA) examination in Henley Business School in the University of Reading, UK.
The aim of the research was to clarify stakeholder management and development in Valli member associations and to recognize strengths and possibilities of the stakeholders in development of the Valli Resource Center model. Altogether 11 organizations from 65 Valli member associations participated in the survey. Four different respondent groups were included; directors, members of the management team, managers and others (with specification). Read more about Puhakka's research.
