The traditional approach to stakeholder engagement is fraught with limitations.
Infrequent, brief, expensive, formal engagements often take months to plan, and leave little time to address multiple problems or develop rapport.
Fortunately, it doesn't have to be this way anymore.
With advances in technology, timely, cost-affective, convenient, synchronous and asynchronous methods of engagement are available.
These provide opportunities to meet more frequently with KOLs, develop community among stakeholder groups, and gather a greater volume of insights throughout your product lifecycle.
Use the new model to maximize your expert engagements.
