In a visual interested party model, the business, for example, can be placed in the middle with a relation towards those who affect and those who are affected by the organization. Those who have some sort of interest in the object placed in the middle then becomes the interested party of the object. However, an organization doesn’t have to be in the center. An interested party model can, for example, be based upon IT-systems, projects or a process.
You can also describe the stakeholders’ relations towards each other, outside the area of the business. These relations can consist of everything from the customers’ customer to the suppliers’ supplier.
