Effective Stakeholder Engagement

How to Engage Effectively with Stakeholders

You need to “engage with stakeholders”. But do you need to communicate, consult or collaborate? The answer is a complicated mix of your stakeholder environment, the challenge you’re facing, and the outcome you need to achieve.

We’d like you to meet Viviane. She’s both brilliant and wise in the ways of stakeholder engagement.

Viviane will ask you ten questions, each with four or five ‘scenario’ responses. Your answers will help her guide you to the most effective form of stakeholder engagement, all things considered. Based on your answers she will offer you her top 2 or 3 recommendations based on your particular situation.

You may find benefit simply from answering the questions and pondering her recommendations. And if you’d like to discuss it with us, we’re only a phone call (or email) away.
