Co-Create Proposals

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. 1.
    Agree on the driver (or problem / opportunity / need)
  2. 2.
    Explore the topic and understand constraints
  3. 3.
    Generate ideas
  4. 4.
    Design a proposal (often done by a smaller group)
One way to co-create proposals is to use S3’s Proposal Forming pattern.

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.
