  21. 21. URBACT LAB 1 SESSION 1 21 “If I had one hour to solve a problem, I’d spend 55 minutes thinking about the problem and 5 minutes thinking about solutions.” Albert Einstein
  22. 22. WHY DOES IT MATTER? • Most cities come into URBACT with a problem already defined… • Often, this is a broadly stated problem…defined by a particular stakeholder/s • As natural ‘fixers’ we often jump to solutions too quickly • Under scrutiny, the problem is often redefined – sometimes more specific, other times transformed • The process of defining and agreeing the problem fosters openness, transparency and a shared approach URBACT LAB 1 SESSION 1 22

  27. 27. “Any individual, groups of people, institutions or firms that may have a significant interest in the success or failure of a project / plan (either as implementers, facilitators, beneficiaries or adversaries) are defined as ‘stakeholders’.” URBACT LAB 1 SESSION 1 27
  28. 28. CRITICAL FOR SUCCESS AND SUSTAINABILITY URBACT LAB 1 SESSION 1 28
  29. 29. STAKEHOLDERS ARE CRITICAL FOR SUCCESS AND SUSTAINABILITY • Improve content and planned results • Motivate engagement of those that will benefit from the actions • Cross check relevance and need for the actions • Create consensus, support and build relationships around planned actions • Higher chance of successful results • Reduce risks URBACT LAB 1 SESSION 1 29
  30. 30. WHY PARTICIPATION? • More knowledge and information • Better suited to change processes • Co-creation brings about better quality results • Increases motivation • Ensures commitment for the implementation phase URBACT LAB 1 SESSION 1 30
  31. 31. ACHIEVING COMMITMENT Commitment is not an action you can make an agreement on! Commitment is a process everyone has to go through! URBACT LAB 1 SESSION 1 31 Participation •Involvement in reflection Insight •Background, alternatives, views Acceptance •Ownership, positive feelings Commitment
  32. 32. KEY INGREDIENTS OF GOOD MEETINGS • Clear structure • Efficient use of time • All participants are active – all the time • People enjoy the meeting and are motivated • Leads to collective, structured views • Leads to visible results, commitment • People leave the meeting in good mood URBACT LAB 1 SESSION 1 32
  33. 33. MAP AND KNOW YOUR STAKEHOLDERS • Identify - who are they? • Analyse– who is important, who is interested, who is not? Who has power and influence? • Engagement – what do the stakeholders want? What do you want? How can you help them deliver what you want? How can you shift their positions? URBACT LAB 1 SESSION 1 33
  34. 34. A GOOD STARTING POINT IS TO CONSIDER THE INDIVIDUALS AND ORGANISATIONS: • You want/expect to benefit; • Who complain that you’re not doing anything to resolve an issue; • Who have similar issues to address; • Who may already be rolling out a programme that may be working towards common goals; • Who may wish to fund or co-fund a project; • Who don’t know about what you are trying to achieve but who are quick to criticise; • Who may be adversely affected by your project; • The media. URBACT LAB 1 SESSION 1 34
  35. 35. ANALYSING AND PRIORITISING STAKEHOLDERS URBACT LAB 1 SESSION 1 35 High Importance / Low influence They require special attention if their interests are to be protected. High Importance / High Influence Develop good working relationships with these stakeholders to ensure support. Keep informed throughout the process they are unlikely to be the focus of the activity . Low importance / Low Influence These stakeholders may be ‘deal breakers’ and could constitute a serious risk. Low importance / High Influence Influence high Importance high low
  36. 36. WORKING WITH STAKEHOLDERS • Be clear about what you are seeking to achieve; • Find out what makes key stakeholders tick; • Understand your impact on others; • Look for common ground; • Be flexible and adapt your approach for different audiences. URBACT LAB 1 SESSION 1 36
  37. 37. GETTING THE BEST OUT OF STAKEHOLDERS • Make sure a wide set of views and opinions can be expressed; • Create an inclusive and positive environment; • Ensure that everyone (Community) gets a voice in the most appropriate way; • Presentations, workshops, focus groups; traditional and social media can be used to encourage discussions and agreement at different stages.
