Increase Transparency

In order to capitalize on the networks made and resources gathered, transparency and frequent communication is necessary among all stakeholders. When working with multiple groups and organizations, it is important to make sure that communication is facilitated between all parties. In order to keep everyone on the same page, we ensured that each party has the most current version of all documents and regularly reflected on our progress. When we communicated with stakeholders, we conducted our meetings in a professional manner. Most importantly, community leaders attended all of our major stakeholder meetings, and played a lead role in construction planning. Each of these strategies together support open communication and transparency among everyone involved in the upgrading process.
