Ankostra at your side for public affairs management

Public affairs make it possible to highlight the general interest in particular interests. It is an act of mediation and facilitation on behalf of a representative of interest to meet its stakeholders.

The search for an acceptable compromise among the diversity of interests creates fertile ground for the good vitality of democracy.

In a world characterized by chains of complex interdependencies, with uncertain consequences, we can no longer approach public affairs in a classical way.

Science at the service of influence strategy

Several lines of research, from sociology to psychology to data science, have shed light on how people share information, knowledge and resources during the decision-making period. To meet this challenge, Ankostra has developed the reticular approach

We defend a transparent and argumentative influence strategy using reticular decision-making thresholds.

Ankostra opens up alternatives
to impasses of influence

At Ankostra, we are aware that the relationships that drive companies and the political or institutional sphere are multifactorial. They can become conflictual, with a certain elaboration of complexity that seems to leave no way out other than destructive of value.

The promotion of a private interest to decision-making bodies concerns various situations and affects all companies, regardless of their size: conflict with a partner in a national or international context, influence
on public decision-making, capture of new national and international markets, communication in periods of uncontrolled development, etc.

Public affairs adapted to complexity

Graph theory is a valuable scientific tool for influencing individual and collective decision-making thresholds.

Indeed, this current of sociology has shown that it is possible to calculate thresholds of the number of people to be convinced in a decision, and their influence on the decision-making of a particular third person, in particular according to the clustering indicators which involve it in this influence group.

We can then share these potential agreements among the parties in order to construct the final agreement.
