Timing: When do we need to engage stakeholders?

• The easy rule is to engage as early as possible!

• If the final decision is already made and participation or non-participation could not (for whatever reason) change it any longer, then there is no point in initiating participation. “Seeming participation” will only damage the organization’s relationships with resident groups, not to mention their reputation, making it difficult to initiate participation in the
future.
