STRUCTURE OF OUR SESSION
• 5 stages:
– Short intro « Go beyong just reporting? »
– Exploring limits of actual metrics (metaplan)
– Reverse brainstorming
– Next steps (roadmap at a sector level, a university level and a Dept.
– Wrap up
! To define a strategy (understand, have a vision, estabish
a hierarchy, choose, compare… ),
! To pilot (implement, measure, adjust, decide…),
! To sell, convince, argue,
! To meet your obligations or not,
! To control,
! To master, be efficient (or at least believe you are),
! To be credible in a world which relies a lot on

CONNECTION GAME RULES
1. Look around the circle and randomly choose the numbers of two other
players. This is secret! Do not tell anyone what numbers you have chosen.
• all “even numbers” must choose two numbers
• every “odd numbers” must choose another number and the
• Nobody should choose the “number 5” and “number 1”
2. Like any system there are some rules in this organization. This system is at
is equilibrium point when « everyone is equidistant from the other two
players whose numbers he has chosen ».
3. When we will give a signal. Do this with no talking.
4. The game continues until all players are equidistant from the two others
they are watching, and movement stops – a state of equilibrium.
5. The goal is to achieve equilibrium as quickly as possible.
