So you and your team have come this far; you’ve built a sound level of engagement, identified goals, have a plan and made connections in the community. Now all that’s left to do is actually getting everything off the ground, which in our opinion, can seem simple enough but is often the hardest part to execute. This is often the stage where motivation to drive CSR programmes can run out as ideas and plans are tested in a real world environment, and sometimes, things may not go the way they had been intended.
With these issues in mind, this section highlights some of the key issues to be mindful of at this stage. This is by no means an exhaustive list and we strongly encourage you and your team to identify any concerns or possible challenges that apply to your set of circumstances.
