Political Strategy

Developing effective political strategies requires sound understanding of policy issues and careful analysis of key stakeholders. Oshun draws on a highly experienced network of associates to carry out research and analysis and then goes a step further, developing our findings into action-oriented strategies. Stakeholder analytics are essential, and we are good at thinking laterally about ways to influence partners, build constituencies and identify potential stumbling blocks. We focus on risk management and mitigation, developing whole project cycle approaches to continually evaluate progress and focus on outcomes. Our planning tools are flexible, and can be adapted in real time.

We support organisations, governments and businesses to:

  • Develop new political strategies to gain traction for policy imperatives
  • Generate stakeholder analytics, overlaying policy, people and power
  • Create targeted advocacy strategies for maximum impact
  • Build risk assessment and mitigation tools
  • Develop strategic communications plans
