Developing Stakeholder Engagement To Support School Reform.
Camarena, Margaret M.
This document is the first of a series that will address five stages of the school reform process. It focuses on the first stage of the change process, managing key stakeholders and external groups and engaging them in the planning and development of the reform or innovation. A stakeholder is any group or individual who can affect or is affected by an organization's attainment of its goals. Managing stakeholders is necessary for an organization to maintain focus on its goals, to function efficiently, and to achieve its goals. The following steps in the planning and development process are addressed: (1) engagement and recruitment of key stakeholders; (2) identification of major problems, concerns, and needs; (3) identification of obstacles, predisposing conditions, and enabling factors; (4) verification of subjective assessments with more objective data and information; and (5) prioritization and selection of the problem or need that the reform/innovation will attempt to remedy. Planning materials in this document are based on problem-solving approaches and implementation models developed in the health promotion/prevention field. Worksheets are included for stages of the planning process. (SLD)
