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.
