  • Interest (+ or -) - how interested is the stakeholder on the IMSG/GISD effort and related initiatives to establish 38G program, (i.e. how likely is the stakeholder to be active or passive)

  • Attitude(+ or -) - the perceived “initial” stakeholder attitude (positive or negative) of the proposed effort to increase military involvement in support of governance, the extent to which the stakeholder will “back” (support) or “block” (resist) proposed changes based on their perceived support for change or a status quo bias
