A (facilitated) group process for co-creating a response to a driver.
- draws on the collective intelligence and diversity of perspective within a group
- involves people in co-creating agreements
- fosters accountability and sense of ownership
Proposal forming may be also be used by an individual.
Proposal Forming Steps
- Consent to driver: Is this driver relevant for us to respond to? Is the driver statement an accurate description of what is happening and what is needed?
- Deepen shared understanding of driver: invite essential questions to understand more detail about the driver.
- Collect considerations phrased as questions relating to possible solutions. Questions either reveal constraints (information gathering questions) or possibilities (generative questions).
- Answer any information gathering questions if possible.
- Prioritize considerations.
- Gather ideas as possible ingredients for a proposal.
- Design a proposal for addressing the driver considering the creative ideas and information gathered so far. This is usually done by a smaller group (tuners).
- who should be there?
- who wants to be there?
- who else may have a valuable contribution to make?
- consider expertise, outside view, and inspiration
- any objections to this group?
