Bring people together to co-create proposals in response to organizational drivers: tap collective intelligence, build sense of ownership and increase engagement and accountability.
There are many ways to co-create proposals. They typically follow a similar pattern:
- 1.Agree on the driver (or problem / opportunity / need)
- 2.Explore the topic and understand constraints
- 3.Generate ideas
- 4.Design a proposal (often done by a smaller group)
A template for proposals
For inspiration for steps 2 and 3, look to classic group facilitation techniques or design thinking activities.
Besides in a face-to-face workshop, you can adapt this process for online meetings. You can even use it asynchronously (and over an extended period of time) to include many people.
