We’ve had the good fortune to have worked with a global information technology company over the past 4 years, delivering large leadership development programs and smaller team sessions. Our latest work with them was to create a Scenario Thinking series for their entire Business and Strategic Planning function. I’m particularly excited about this work.
First, what a great commitment to have everyone in the department participate in the learning. They developed a common language and built an additional toolkit to use with their partners in the business. They worked with real Focal Questions that matter for the company’s future. This is doing real work while learning how to do it in a new way.
Second, I’m excited about the remote delivery model. Yup, that’s right. I still miss being in the room with everyone and will keep missing that live connection when it can’t happen. However, the learning that happens in this format may be better than face to face. These planners had time to incubate their ideas and evolve their work over a few weeks instead of experiencing the process in a FTF session with less time for reflection.
Finally, this Scenario Series is global and scalable. Approximately fifty participants from several countries will join.
No carbon offsets needed.
