By analyzing these pictures you can decide which influencers need to be involved in the change process. You can involve all of them but  if you want to be efficient then you can pick up only some of them.  Be sure that the selected leaders can influence at least 80% of your company to ensure good penetration of new ideas in teams.

Interesting thing is that by using this approach you can totally ignore your official organizational structure. You can only follow your needs and do exact steps to reach the goals.

The second step can be that you identify the people which should have been influencers but they are not and you can work with them and help them to be the right person in the right place. You can ask your HR department to help you with this. You can prepare a training or mentor program.
