Designing Processes for Achieving Common Goals
Stakeholder Collaboration has been recognised as critical to finding solutions to the complex challenges of sustainable development. At CLI, we see Stakeholder Collaboration as the art of respectfully turning differences into progress. But as with all arts, there are skills you need to develop in order to succeed, to know when and how to use dialogue, and when to take action.
In this course module, you will build your strategic abilities and implementation skills in stakeholder engagement, dialogue, and collaboration processes for high impact solutions. The training is based on the combined experience of our faculty and alumni from all over the world, active in the public sector, the private sector, and civil society. After this course you will be able to initiate and implement Stakeholder Collaboration successfully.
