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?

Evaluation rigour for harvesting

Chris Corrigan

We are embarking on a innovative approach to a social problem and we need a framework to guide the evaluation process. In Art of Hosting terms, we might call this a harvesting plan. Innovation niche. Evaluation (and harvesting) rigour is a design consideration.

A collective harvest of the four fold practice

Chris Corrigan

Here is a snippet of the harvest from our work this week: Presensing and hosting yourself. Bring together diversity for better innovation. be clear about the purpose of and the intended harvest of a conversation.

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

Chris Corrigan

A gradient of difference, or a range of diversity in a set of data helps us to discover innovative practices and sustain creative tensions. Often, consultation and engagement is not undertaken with an innovative mindset. We are looking for justification rather than innovation.

Continuing My Ecocycle Experimentation

After some discussion, many groups identified this as a rich area of potential and possibility, the space of innovation and renewal. From a facilitation standpoint, I was worried that the groupings we created for the maps would not work.

Exploring future possibilities by mapping “dispositionalities”

Chris Corrigan

The red items were things that EVERYBODY was talking about, which meant that the space for innovation was quite closed down. We deliberately created a space where things were allowed to fail or radically change and we harvested learning all the way along. This learning was summarized in a report, but the bigger harvest was the capacity that each participant built to take steps to sense, design and implement change initiatives with a better informed complexity approach.

Chris Corrigan

First, evaluation of social programs, social innovation and other interventions in the human services is a huge industry and it holds great sway. the next time you are facilitating a brainstorm session, have the group record dozens of insights on post its and place them randomly on a wall.

Participatory Leadership in South Africa

I’m back in Johannesburg after three days on the veld west of the city running an Art of Participatory Leadership workshop with my friend from REOS Social Innovation. In our work we shared models of hosting participatory meetings, described maps and practices that help us stay grounded and open, and explored ways of harvesting that were inclusive and holistic.

Conversation and scaling up complexity

Chris Corrigan

Collaboration, dialogue, visioning, possibility and choice creating, innovation, letting go of limiting beliefs, learning, and creative implementation are all dependant on good conversational practice. The ability to sense, converse, harvest and act together depends on good hosting and good conversation. Tags: Art of Hosting Collaboration Conversation Design Facilitation Learning Organization

Review of Kate Pugh’s Sharing Hidden Know-How

Portals and KM

The book describes Knowledge Jam, “a facilitated collaborative method for helping organizations rediscover the fundamental discipline of knowledge transfer – the conversation.”   Knowledge Solutions can be a great help here as they become the carrier for the identified knowledge, a main means to harvest more, and the vehicle to identify and put it in the hands of the right people to derive business value from its use.
