Stakeholder Engagement for Medical Managers and Leaders

How does your organisation involve people who may be affected by your decisions? How do you help them influence the implementation of your decisions? Having effective strategies and systems to encourage good stakeholder engagement is increasingly a requirement for public bodies.  This course will review engagement standards, such as IAP2 and AA1000, and look at online tools that can assist you in the management of your engagement activities.

This 1-day program, limited to 15 participants, covers:

  • developing your own engagement guide based on an actual project you will use for your work
  • developing a stakeholder engagement plan for your project that includes processes for:
    – clarifying your objectives
    – analysing the needs of your stakeholders
    – undertaking risk analysis
    – selecting appropriate communication tools
    – providing feedback to your stakeholders
  • learning to use a number of templates that can be adapted to suit specific needs
  • understanding challenges, biases and opportunities upon implementation

This interactive one-day program is aimed at those who manage a range of complex and often competing stakeholder needs and require insight into how to build mutually beneficial partnerships.  Join our classes to network with other medical managers and participate in your continued professional development.
