We design and facilitate collaborative, multi-skilled, human centric, immersive workshops. This begins by working with a sponsor to develop and agree a workshop plan. Following this, we oversee all aspects of the workshop. The steps might typically include briefing the workshop participants, assigning pre-work, supplying the venue and materials, facilitating the workshop and producing a summary of the outcomes.
Workshops to bring teams together and drive alignment with a focus on discovery and diagnosis.
In this workshop we might develop a deep understanding, empathy and consensus around a challenge; identify deep causes and ideate on potential courses of action; classify and evaluate ideas; agree potential next steps and ownership with the team.
Typical duration: ½ to 2 days
Workshops enable teams to work collaboratively, develop new approaches, explore options and produce initial plans.
In this workshop we might map the challenge; generate potential courses of action; select the best ones; develop the concepts; prototype and user test; plan next steps and assign ownership.
Typical duration: 1 to 5 days
Periodic review workshops which enable teams to evaluate their progress, adjust, learn and grow.
In this workshop we might review what has been working well and what has not been working so well from as many perspectives or roles as possible; synthesise these findings; ideate on improvements; update plans and agree any revised ownership.
Typically 1 day per month
We assemble a small, cross-functional diverse team of workshop participants. More diversity usually results in better outcomes. Diversity of skill, skill level, experience and roles are among the factors considered.
We identify a convenient and conducive time and location (possibly virtual, possibly offsite). We guide the team through a variety of exercises using techniques to deepen their understanding of the challenge, ideate, select and develop concepts, and experiment with prototypes while having fun and allowing every voice to be heard.
We unleash untapped creativity and the power from within your organisation to solve tricky problems.
Existing constraints such as roles, responsibilities, organisational structure and workload frequently restrict people from applying their creativity and energy to important challenges. Urgent tasks can deflect attention from the less immediate but potentially important ones.
Organisations often have the skills, knowledge and ability to remove these blocks. As external agents, we help diverse teams to collaborate across boundaries, to tackle these challenges and devise improved courses of action.
