Explanatory Slides for SPI (Apr 13 by T.Grossardt)
A Suggested Approach to Help Organize the Issues and the Participants• All participation is anonymous and simultaneous, so no cross-influences can exist. Results are seen immediately by all, so transparency is guaranteed.• First slide helps establish which stage of engagement each participant has progressed to: 1. Information gathering 2. Initial ‘gut’ or ‘emotive’ reaction 3. Analytic consideration/comparison 4. Opinion formation/ Action decision• The following two slides allow dynamic input to define the nature of expectations of the participants. The volunteered topics are recorded, then scored for importance by the entire group. This helps assure that subsequent small group deliberation is focused on what really matters to them.• The content comes from the participants. Slides 3 and 4 could each generate a dozen or more different thoughts for the participants to score.• Most important topics become the subjects for the breakout groups. Groups could take on a couple of related topics, if desired. People can volunteer to group topics that matter most to them.• Quickly allows the large group to discover, and demonstrate to each other, what matters most, and go to work on it.• Eliminates shouting matches, bogus claims of representation, red herrings• Establishes a clear pattern and plan for civil, organized, productive participation• NOTE: Participants will rightfully expect to know what will happen with the results of the day’s work.
