Stakeholder InvolvementFor a program to be effective, it is essential for members of the target population to be involved in developing the mission, goals, and objectives. Who would you reach out to for developing your program? Are there other community organizations or business partners that you would like to connect with during this process? How would you facilitate the involvement of various stakeholders? What challenges do you think you might encounter? In this Discussion, you and your colleagues address the myriad issues related to stakeholder involvement during the creation of a program’s mission, goals, and objectives. To prepare:
- Review the information presented in this week’s Learning Resources and conduct additional research of your own to learn about programs that have successfully involved various stakeholders in the target population.
Post a cohesive scholarly response that addresses the following:
- Why is it important for representatives from the target population to be involved in developing the goals and objectives for the program?
- How could you involve the representatives from the target population in designing the program?
- What strategies could be used to navigate disagreements or lack of interest?
