Buy In

Buy in of stakeholders is critical for success.  It will require a combination of skills that include facilitation, negotiation and active listening.  Your relationship with the stakeholders, the trust that exists as you move forward, and your ability to manage ambivalence and resistance are essential “points to remember”.

As part of the change process, certain activities will increase your chances for successful buy-in.  Begin by collecting information from a variety of individuals, teams or groups and their associated networks to understand what they value, need and want.  Explore the feasibility of successful transition to interprofessional initiatives in your agency.  What needs to be developed in order to get there?
