One review for "A to Z of Engagement Techniques"

  1. This toolkit consists of more than fifty public and stakeholder engagement techniques, organized by alphabetical order in an easy-to-read table. Each one of them is linked to a page with a description of the technique’s main characteristics. The step-by-step guide provided in the toolkit was particularly helpful when my team and I were trying to better grasp assets at stakes when organizing a Citizen Committee. Indeed, the « A to Z engagement techniques » toolkit provides easy to use, concrete and concise guides.
    However, I would say this toolkit requires a prior knowledge of engagement techniques, as it takes some time to compare and contrast all existing techniques before finding the most adapted one. Otherwise, it would have been interesting to have a tool to search a specific engagement technique from predefined criteria. Even without knowing the name of a technique, it would just require selecting a few criteria, for example an average level of difficulty, a long timeframe, and a low innovation level to discover which technique is the most adapted one, and how to put it into practice.
    I would recommend using this toolkit in complement to New Zealand government’s “Policy methods Toolbox”, especially its “Community Engagement” section.
