Engagement Tools and Technology
Tools/technology today provide many opportunities to engage stakeholders in a variety of ways – in some cases, it can seem like too many choices abound. How to choose effectively?
Waterford guides clients in selecting and implementing savvy tools/tech that make engagement more effective and efficient, and that add value in support of project goals.
For example, these may include engagement platforms (online communities for engagement), polling tools for an in-person engagement at meetings, or the use of citizen science tools that enable community members to gather data that are valuable for project use or other tools/tech as needed.
Length of Engagements: Varies according to project need, generally as part of a larger Stakeholder Engagement project
