Communication by managers within an organisation should be guided by the real needs of stakeholders. This program explores several tools to help identify those real needs and not just work from assumptions. In doing so, organisations can create communication strategies that enable effective engagement with those stakeholders.

Overview

Stakeholder engagement is integral to the success of all projects and major organisational change initiatives, regardless of the size of the project. Too often, relationships with stakeholders are managed in an informal or intuitive way. This casual approach to stakeholder engagement is one of the most common causes of project failure which could easily be prevented with better planning.

Who Will Benefit

Project managers, coordinators, community workers or other staff who are responsible for projects with a number of diverse stakeholders.
