Some recent harvests

Chris Corrigan

So a little time to breathe and reflect on a couple of harvests. Second, a harvest poem from the Open Space I ran yesterday in Kelowna. With Open Space these days I am trying as much as possible to have a place in which a meta harvest can be collected and created. Most often this looks like a graphic recorder who gathers materials and snippets from the sessions and co-creates a harvest with session conveners and participants. How do we step up to govern and guide.

A decade of living and learning, hosting and harvesting

Chris Corrigan

Indeed ten years ago this day, as a precocious 31 year old fed up with travel (ironically) and the various despairs of working for the federal government, I quit my job and hung out a shingle. Since then, I have facilitated literally hundreds of gatherings from two person retreats to international conferences using a variety of participatory methodologies.

Just about the most fun you can have getting paid

Chris Corrigan

We were hired by the Aboriginal Housing Management Association of BC to facilitate dialogue at this 800 person international gathering. Our first challenge was to think about how to harvest stories and connections quickly from 800 people. There were six key areas we needed to think about for capacity building: governance, building, partnerships, community, education and ownership.

Strategic planning using the World Cafe and Open Space

Chris Corrigan

Harvested main themes in group. Developed the values for the non-profit from this harvest. In this case the organization needed to plan in five basic areas: services, funding, human resources, government relations and labour relations. Our process ran like this: Prepare a harvest wall with five blank spots for reporting, each with one of the five topic headings.

Growing seeds in thin soil

Chris Corrigan

A cafe today, with littler preparation on the ground and a tricky issue in a community, but a good result today and some good learnings about harvesting. We stayed standing in the circle for a half hour while some of the Elders talked about how hurt they had been over the past several years as the work the community had done to set up and govern the education system had gone sideways.

Himmelman Model - Networking Collaboration Cooperation Coordination

John Tropea - Delicious Collaboration

Many coalitions and partnerships begin their meetings with a go-around of information exchange, in order to facilitate this kind of networking. When the coalition takes a controversial point of view, the mayor or state government may get angry and attack the coalition. If the coalition achieves great success and is acknowledged with an award to be presented by the mayor or the state government, who gets to step up and accept the prize?

Innovation and Communities of Practice

John Tropea - Delicious Community

Etienne Wenger) The “business” perspective of Communities of Practice “A group of self-governing people whose practice is aligned with strategic imperatives and are challenged to create shareholder value by generating knowledge and increasing capabilities.” In both forms, they are facilitated for generating breakthrough insights and innovative ideas that can be implemented. The quality of community facilitation has a direct and high-value impact on the firm’s innovation capacity.
