How does this help teams?
With the first meetup (and appetizer) behind you, now is a good moment to start thinking about the larger opportunities that this group offers - together. If you do, it is more likely that your meetup will endure and draw in more people.
The Liberating Structure Purpose to Practice provides a good framework for this. Although a full P2P takes more time than the meetup allows, we designed this string to tap into the five core components of a resilient initiative: purpose, principles, participants, structure, and practices. We recommend that you revisit and update the P2P periodically.
How does it work?
The PDF outlines a detailed tried-and-tested 120-minute meetup that relies on Liberating Structures to engage and unleash your team. The string is designed with virtual gatherings in mind and includes:
- Nine Whys
- Min Specs
- 25/10 Crowd Sourcing
- 15% Solutions
The string is optimized for groups of any size beyond 4+ participants.
What do you receive?
- A 13 page full-color PDF.
- We take you through the flow of the string in great detail. Not only do we explain all the steps involved, but we also explain why they are happening. This should make it easier to design your own strings in the future.
- The instructions support all virtual collaboration tools where you can create breakouts our separate channels occasionally (such as Zoom, GotoWebinar, and Teams). You can set up an additional virtual whiteboard in a tool like Mural, Google Slides, or Miro if you prefer.
- The PDF outlines additional resources and useful reading, both to prepare and to distribute afterward.
