How to validate authenticity

Validation that this is an official OECD website can be found on the Innovative Government page of the corporate OECD website.

The Danish Design Center created the Ecosystem Mapping tool to help users get an overview of their project stakeholders and potential participants and analyse the motivations, resources and capabilities, that will become valuable for the overall ecosystem.

Through its application, users can map all actors (partners, collaborators, contractors, external stakeholders, etc.) in a given ecosystem in order to accomplish its mission. The tool provides users with "Question Cards" to confirm identified actors and explore different and non-obvious players that are currently not engaged in the ecosystem. Users can cluster actors according to their motivations and/or resources and characterise their specific role for that initiative or project.

The tool is designed to be applied in groups of 2-6 participants and usually takes between 45 to 90 minutes to complete.
