  2. Best Practice Report: Leadership: Engagement and Communication with Stakeholders

    November 11, 2019 by BPIR.com Limited

    A stakeholder is an individual or a group that holds a stake or, in other words, an interest in an organisation’s activities. Stakeholders can come from almost every area in which an organisation exists and operates: they can, for example, be employees, suppliers or customers; consumers, unions or legislators; banks, competitors or shareholders. Engaging and communicating with stakeholders is a fundamental ‘must’ for every organisation. Engagement goes beyond a simple exchange of information. Engagement involves listening, learning and collaborating with those who have a legitimate interest in an organisation’s activities, products and services. It is the process through which leaders (from CEOs to managers to team leaders) involve those people who may be affected by the decisions an organisation makes or might influence the implementation of the decisions. Stakeholder communication refers to all forms of communication-formal and informal-that leaders convey to the organisation’s stakeholders. Organisational communication can be considered a subset of the deeper role of stakeholder engagement, in which leaders play a critical role.

  5. Best Practice Report: Leadership: Vision, Mission, and Values

    June 7, 2019 by BPIR.com Limited

    Vision is where an organisation wants to go: it describes the targeted successful state for an organisation. An organisational vision should be challenging and inspirational to its employees and stakeholders. A vision statement usually presents an ideal in the longer rather than in the shorter term.Mission is what an organisation is here to deliver. It is the reason for its existence and supports the attainment of the vision. The mission is usually measured by how well an organisation is achieving its objectives and goals.

    Values are the guiding principles of the organisation. It gives employees a moral compass, a set of ideals, and a standard of behaviour expected in the organisation. Some organisations use a code of conduct or ethics to put these values into practice.

    Together, the vision, mission, and values communicate an organisation’s philosophy. They set the direction and the purpose, and show what the organisation cares about in its journey towards fulfilling its vision.
