The Onion Diagram is a type of stakeholder map. At a glance, it shows stakeholders in the layers of their closeness to a project. In this example, the innermost layer includes the project team, followed by those whose work is directly affected by the project, the organization as a whole, and then external stakeholders such as regulators, customers, and suppliers. The Onion Diagram may be developed as part of the BABOK®’s Conduct Stakeholder Analysis task or the PMBOK®’s Identify Stakeholders process. The overall purpose is to better understand a project’s stakeholders.
