Discuss, Decide, Do


Effective public consultation manages risk and makes it easier to find common ground. Author: Nicole Swerhun, Vanessa Avruskin

The better the information people have, the better decisions they will make and the easier it is to find the common ground you need to take action. Effective consultation manages risk.  It brings certainty to an inherently uncertain environment and puts your organization in a position where your work is championed by supporters and the process is defensible to criticism from naysayers.

This online book outlines six strategies and eight steps to follow when implementing public consultation processes. Learn more about each strategy and steps, along with an explanation of why each strategy matters and examples of how they have been applied in public engagement projects.
