Stakeholder Management Strategy & Planning

Organisations operate in an environment characterised by an accelerating rate of change (volatility), a lack of predictability (uncertainty), an interconnectedness of cause-and-effect forces (complexity), and the strong potential for misreads (ambiguity). In order to succeed in such an environment, your organisation needs the support of its stakeholders to achieve its business goals. G3 Business Solutions can help your organisation plan its approach to stakeholder management and engagement at strategic, operational and issue / goal related levels.

Effective stakeholder management, backed by clearly articulated strategy and well-informed planning can help ensure the uninterrupted functioning of the business, and a safeguarded socio-political license to operate.

Stakeholder management strategy

G3 Business Solutions is ideally suited to helping your organisation develop its stakeholder management strategy. Over the years, we have helped clients craft stakeholder management strategies that support the successful execution of business strategy, while ensuring stakeholder input and shared value.

G3 is particularly skilled in developing stakeholder management strategies at a global, regional or cross-country level, where the complexities of a VUCA world are heightened, having successfully assisted multi-national listed organisations such as the MTN Group, Sasol and Woolworths with their group-level stakeholder management strategies.
