PLUME: five principles of harvesting

Chris Corrigan

This morning we began our Harvesting and Collective Sensemaking online course. Specifically these principles apply to harvesting in complex situations where you are using participatory methods to make sense of and make decisions. And what if collective learning WAS the harvest?

Through the Dark Mountain: A Harvest of Myths

How to Save the World

Here is the Harvest, in alphabetical order (grouping seemingly related myths, and some of their opposites): Activism: that well-coordinated activism at the right scale can change the world. Happiness as Purpose: that a happy life is a good life, and that achieving it is a worthy goal in life.

Understanding where you are, not where you think you are: some tips and a process

Chris Corrigan

These quotes reminded me how much evaluation and planning is directed towards goals, targets and patterns that cause us to look for data that supports what we want to see rather than learning what the data is telling us about what’s really going on.

Announcing two workshops for September 2016

Michelle Laurie

This year I am very excited to host two workshops focused on the use of visuals in our facilitation practice.

The second is the 7th annual Rosviz graphic facilitation workshop.

How to be a Network Gardener

Net-Map Toolbox

They are called “Network Facilitators”, “Network Organizers” or even “Network Managers” But I think the term “Network Gardener” describes much more tanglibly, what those people do who help large and dispersed networks of people grow toward common goals.

What do we mean by engagement online? | Full Circle Associates

Nancy White

Now that some very crude and un-scientific definitions of engagement are on the table, let’s look at how we, as facilitators, can encourage engagement online. If that is the reality, consider sub groups and weave ideas between them as their facilitator.

How complexity principles can inform participatory process design
