We will take three steps:
1 – Background Interviews
I interview your management and subject area experts. I have three goals: Understand the subject matter. Sense the interactions between the colleagues. Identify the barriers to an integrated approach.
2 – Analysis & Design
I analyze the interview statements. The focus is on cultural differences influencing collaboration. I then create a workshop design: What questions will we address, in which sequence, via what kinds of exercizes, who should participate. You and I discuss the design. I modify it according to your input.
3 – Workshop Execution
I execute the workshop on the basis of the workshop design, and as discussed with you and then modified by me. In the workshop we stick to the design. I lead the participants to agreement on an integrated approach. Workshops have a duration of two days, with six to eight participants, and take place off-site.
