Hi Sarah
just back from leave so only now seeing this.
When you say ' stakeholder mapping for networks' it really depends on what you would really find useful. For example there is some guidance in the Large Scale Change guide regarding stakeholder mapping generally https://www.england.nhs.uk/publication/leading-large-scale-change/
If you are thinking more in relation to who are the broker, connector and energiser roles in your network, this is something we discuss on our DEN4CI course. If you would like to learn more about this then drop an email to and we can put you on the list so you can apply for the course in Aug/Sept.
Meanwhile you may want to read some of Rob Cross who researched and outlined a specific application of network analysis. Cross identifies multiple roles (Connector, Expert, Broker, Energizer, and Resister) that provide insight into the different ways that leaders can leverage people in a change effort. Connectors (those who support many team members in different ways), for example, can help create alignment through their informal leadership and trusted opinions. Brokers, with their ties that bridge organisational boundaries, can help address the need for adjustments that take place during a change initiative. Resisters, who can stall momentum, can be brought on board and engaged to aid change initiatives.
There is a brief summary of some of Cross's work at https://innovationgarden.typepad.com/innovation-garden/2012/11/the-hidden-power-of-social-networks-rob-cross-andrew-parker-hidden-power-of-social-networks-the-central-premise-of-th.html
