Stakeholder engagement is relevant in all types of organizations. It is especially important when it comes to an organization which is supported in part or wholly by tax-payer monies. How can you serve your community, your constituents or contribute to the progress of your community without listening to stakeholders or discussing issues of interest with your stakeholders? Many organizations shy away from stakeholder engagement citing lack of time or money. Stakeholder engagement can be a big investment and, with a willingness to engage, listen and consider change based on stakeholder input, there can be major efficiencies that, in the long run, save time, money and our programs.
