Tension barometer

WesselinkVanZijst developed the tension barometer, a colorful tool to indicate where stakeholders causes tension on issues that are crucial to your challenge. The barometer uses media sensitivity, emotion and predictable behavior as markers for tension in the relationship with stakeholders. Using expert judgement we measure this tension and show it in the barometer with colors. Together with the issue matrix this tool is used to strategize on pro-active measures in the relationship with the high-tension stakeholders, opening or strengthening dialogue and creating trust in each other.
