Content

The three-day training Strategic Stakeholder Engagement (SSE) provides the foundational knowledge and skills required to: analyze the stakeholder environment; design strategy; negotiate agreements, and; ensure implementation. SSE is rooted in the Mutual Gains Approach to negotiation as developed by MIT professor Lawrence Susskind and the Consensus Building Institute (CBI). The training is interactive and practical, full of inspiring examples from SSE practice.

SSE in the Netherlands
In the Netherlands, the SSE method has been applied to find consensus on a wide range of public-private negotiation challenges: from new roads and large-scale port extensions to clean energy transition projects, major dike renovations and managing internal reforms at large public sector organizations. The Dutch equivalent to the SSE training is followed by around 800 professionals annually under the Dutch title Strategisch OmgevingsManagement (SOM). Participants work for a wide range of organizations such as ministries (e.g. infrastructure, economic affairs and climate, justice & security, defence), provinces, large cities, energy companies, water board authorities, communication and project management agencies.
