You will learn this in Stakeholder engagement

To be effective in a world of change, it is essential to involve the right people at the right time. Stakeholders include those people who may be affected by decisions as well as those who can drive or influence implementation of change. Some will be supportive and others may oppose. 

In any case, it is vital to engage people who are influential in the organization or community in which they operate. Stakeholder engagement promotes a better understanding of the possible impact of decisions and influences the success of their implementation.

The following subjects are covered:

  • Stakeholder Analysis
  • Understanding the stakeholder’s perspective
  • Building trust 
  • Influencing 
  • Dealing with conflict
  • Dealing with organizational politics
  • Stakeholder engagement plan

This course is based on learning by doing. You will identify your own learning goals and do various exercises where you work on your own situation and own challenges. You will also learn from working with other participants on their situations. The program is varied with discussion, theory, practice, analysis, roleplay, feedback, reading, reflection and action planning.


  • You know how to analyse your stakeholders
  • You design your very own stakeholder engagement plan
  • You communicate more effectively with your stakeholders
  • You manage stakeholder relationships successfully

Start and end measurement

This course improves your skills. We can guarantee that. How? Before you start your course, you take a scan. This determines your starting level and helps set the right goals. You receive a personal report. That way, you know exactly where you stand, what you want to accomplish, and how to get there. Your trainer helps you to focus and develop, in order to reach your full potential. After your training is done, you take another scan. This end measurement shows how much you’ve grown, and where you can still develop your skills further.

Course days

The total duration of the training course is 6 weeks. The training course consists of an online kick-off and 2 blocks of 1 day. Your time investment is approximately two hours of self study a week: theoretical and practical through the MijnSN learning community.

Block 1 and 2

  • 1 day from 9.30 AM till 5.00 PM

You train virtual? Then we modify the course days: a training that original takes one day, will be virtual in two days of 3,5 hours. In this way we ensure that you do not spend full days behind your screen and you stay fresh enough to absorb the information. View the schedule for your course days and times.


The maximum group size for the training course is 12 participants.


Real learning starts with the practical application of what you have learned. You will commence several practical assignments within your own organization, selecting a mentor to supervise and stimulate your learning process - before the first meeting. The mentor could be your manager or a (senior) colleague. For more information on the mentor's role please visit www.suas.nl/mentor. After three weeks you will take your experiences in this regard to the next meeting.


On completion of the training course and subject to attendance and active participation, SUAS will award a certificate. Our certificates are highly regarded in the business community.


Are several colleagues facing the same challenge? Then in-company is the ideal option. This course or training can be organized within your organization.
