Mid-Atlantic Facilitators Network
Duration: 90-minute workshop
About the workshop:
We’ve seen the strategic plans built painfully by a few, and ignored by all. We’ve seen plans break with unexpected events. Complex contexts require dynamic, adaptive strategy making and doing authored and owned by everyone, and fit for changing conditions. Join us to explore Knotworking, a strategy that weaves data and peoples’ stories into a coherent whole, grounded in data and relatable through stories. Explore the six compelling Knotworking questions and practice some of the processes to answer them using Liberating Structures, open source methods that spark lively engagement by minimally structuring the way we interact while liberating content and expertise.
In this session, participants will:
● Explore adaptive strategy making versus fixed strategy making.
● Explore the six Knotworking questions for strategy making and doing (and other useful purposes!)
● Experience 2-3 Liberating Structures as processes useful for adaptive strategy making
NOTE: This workshop will be recorded for distribution to all who register (breakout rooms will not be recorded).
This is a 90-minute online workshop. It will take place from 12:00pm to 1:30pm EST.
