Civil Sector & (I)NGOs: International Projects

Stakeholder Management

Stakeholders are the groups of people who are directly involved with the project or are affected by its results and impact. They may include the project teams, the donors, the social groups the NGO aims to serve, the parties sub-contracted for various resources or minority groups indirectly affected by decisions. Government officers, legislators, educators and the media may also be internal or external stakeholders depending on the scope of the project and the perspective of the analysis. Stakeholder management is about defining the nature of such relationships and using them well for the success of the project.

We study and apply methods in connection with your NGO sector:

  • Mapping the full landscape of stakeholders
  • Analysing and defining the nature of the relationships
  • Choosing systems of communication and degrees of engagement
  • Delegating stakeholders to core team members for them to manage
  • Dealing with conflicts of interests
  • Managing the contractual and informal aspects
  • Dealing with policy-makers and securing buy-in of top leaders
  • Reporting for various stakeholders
  • Working with the media.
