Twelfth Management Seminar for the Heads of National Statistical Offices in Asia and the Pacific: Managing Key Stakeholder Relationships
The seminar is based on the premise that in delivering on their missions, national statistical offices work in partnership and establish relationships with stakeholders— loosely speaking: institutions, agencies, groups that have an interest in and some influence on the national statistical system. Among this typically large group of stakeholders is a subset that could be regarded as “key” stakeholders with whom relationships matter the most; the health of such relationships impacts on the NSOs work as well as the statistical system. The seminar will ask and aim to answer questions such as: Who are the “key” stakeholders of national statistical offices and what are the relationships that bind them? Are these relationships in good health and what does it take to get to that level and stay there? The seminar will draw on the experience of participants-- successes, work-in-progress and failures in exploring what are the elements of an effective “stakeholder engagement strategy”.
