In this collaborative session, we will:
Let's list all the people or organisations that we think might have an influence on the outcome of our project.
In this step, we need to decide if each person or organisation is an Assistor or a Resistor.
If you feel that they can be both, you can re-create the same card and put one in each category.
Then, for each one of them, try to find out why do we think he/she/it belongs to that category. To capture the answer, click on the relevant card and formulate your answer by starting with "Because...".

We need to select the most influential Assistors and Resistors. The ones we should focus on.
Individually, each one of us should:
Don't give any points if you think that we should not waste our time on him/her.
Discuss the final output:
What are the next steps?
Based on this reflection, you should now build your action plan (or enrich an existing one) using the Stormz Action Plan template.
