What Is Wrong and What Should Be Done? Eve AnneckeMaria needs to rapidly meet with other stakeholders, organizations,and more moderate politicians, keeping the project of rebuilding thefactory foremost in peoples’ mindsNo quick fix to her previously simplistic, rational, deal-making approach andthat she needs his help to strategically attempt to slowly and painfullyreintegrate the town through the rebuilding of the factoryThe point is for Maria to fine-tune her focus on the process andto trust this process. Through dialogue, creating space for peoples’ stories,and keeping focused on the possibility of rebuilding their town as a beaconof hope in war-torn times

Lyuba Palyvoda Maria’s NGO lacks a clear strategy Communication between Maria’s group and the local politicians and governmental officials was woefully inadequate Maria and her organization STRATEGY to conduct organizational strategic planning Work directly with the community Maria’s NGO needs to establish a new priority list Community support and ownership of the new organizational priorities are developed CompromisesWhat Is Wrong and What Should Be Done?

Several idea necessary to considering for solved the reconciliation and economic assistance. The keyword from advisors is Consensus. And Maria NGO must doing step by step and doing difference approach after they failed ensure the mayor
Solution Maria NGO should take reconciliation, communication with the community, another stakeholder, local politicians and apologize about her mistake to the mayor.
