Stakeholder Management for Policy and Program Delivery
A free eBook that discusses challenges, successes, and evaluation for the Government sector
Do you work in policy and program delivery and want to do better stakeholder management or engagement?
Stakeholders are an important part of policy making — their feedback and involvement may influence the policy development process or implementation. And they’re often significantly impacted by decisions.
If the consultation goes well, stakeholders are more likely to feel confident in the policy, program, government agency, and political system itself. But if it goes badly, it could lead to poor outcomes, like a lack of confidence, mistrust, and even failed policies that reflect badly on the individuals and organizations who were involved.
It’s safe to say there’s a lot at stake when it comes to stakeholder engagement for your policy or program. But managing and engaging with stakeholders in policy development comes with unique challenges. So, if you’re finding the usual stakeholder management processes aren’t working for you… there’s actually a good reason for it.
We’ve put this resource together to help highlight the common challenges — and how you can apply stakeholder management practices to successfully plan and deliver policies and programs.
