You want to get big things done. Here’s how.

The people in your government agency or organization and outside it – the public – can make or break your key initiatives. How you interact with or engage stakeholders and the public drives their response to your projects and your organization in general. When you involve people and listen to them, you build their trust and lay the foundation for success. Working together is the only way to get big things done anymore.
