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?

Community for the 21st Century Harvest

Nancy White

On April 1st, amidst all that was going on in my family, I had the chance to step into a different “space&# and participate in WeDialog’s first online world cafe on “community.&# I simply LOVE these harvests.

The Harvest: After Event Reflections

Nancy White

Harvest time. The harvest. Reflection is a form of harvest. I wanted to point out some examples of how people have shared out their harvest on blogs, tweets, and other social media to create external value. How can this “harvest&# feed, rather than rot in a pile?

Polarities to help design harvesting

Chris Corrigan

Yesterday in a webinar for the Art of Hosting Applied Practice cohort I threw out a set of ideas around harvesting that were prompted a bit by experience and a bit by the questions that participants were asking. ” The act of paying attention to that is called “harvesting.” ” Harvesting planning needs a coherent scheme to structure the work and it is important to focus on all kinds of different outputs and outcomes from a process.

Hosting the harvest

Chris Corrigan

Steven and I are putting into practice an idea that a number of us have been playing with for a could of years, namely hosting a reflective conversation space in which the conference participants can help create the harvest and meaning making about the whole event.

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.

At the intersection of power and participation

Chris Corrigan

” Those of us who are facilitators of participatory process often make grand claims about the power of processes like Open Space Technology and World Cafe to even out power differences. Some participants may be able to operate much more resourcefully because of their power or privilege by, for example, becoming the scribes for small groups and speaking for the group. ” as a way of trying to discern the limits of participation.

It is often an “extra” that I include in my facilitation practice. Part 2 will share a few stories from the workshop participants about their sketchnoting at the meeting and after they returned home.

Some things that work in real reconciliation dialogue

Chris Corrigan

Our client did an incredible job of preparing multiple stakeholders to participate in this discussion, by meeting each group personally and hearing their thoughts on the situation. Also, everyone in the room had to stretch their perspectives to participate.

Some World Cafe tips

Chris Corrigan

“Typical” facilitated sessions imprint people with the pattern that someone will take notes while everyone else talks. Know what you will do with the harvest and tell people. People learned in the invitation what our plans were for the harvest.

Reflections on PGviz18

Michelle Laurie

This was a fitting place for our circle discussions which focused on facilitation techniques but also deeper societal issues. This was a fitting start as much of what we do as graphic facilitators is try to understand how our tools can be of service to support others in their path.

Continuing My Ecocycle Experimentation

As it turns out, the conversations around the creative destruction phase of the ecocyle were very interesting to me, and it appears that they were of interest to the participants. Here are the combined notes Simone and I wrote up: Participants struggled a bit with “Creative destruction.”

Simple meeting design

Chris Corrigan

First we design the bookends: Purpose on the one hand and harvest/action on the other hand. The meeting itself therefore become the vehicle by which a group of people reach a harvest and wise action ground in a purpose and a deep need. Harvest. What do you want to harvest? -

Nuanced preferences instead of voting for sense making

Chris Corrigan

The meaning making is still very much located with the participants. At small tables of four, participants were given 5 minutes to read over the scenarios silently. Art of Harvesting Community Conversation Cynefin Facilitation

Beyond the Webinar

Full Circle Associates

But more often than not, these are content delivery mechanisms with token participant interaction in the form of crowded Q&A segments or polls with varying degrees of relevance. There is a saying in the online facilitation world “A bad meeting F2F is a terrible meeting online.”

Exploring future possibilities by mapping “dispositionalities”

Chris Corrigan

” you get a data set that is divorced from reality, meaning that it is subject to being gamed by the participants. Each participant in the group created one or two prototypes which they rolled out, seeking to make a bit of change and learn about what helped or hindered change making in a relatively conservative sector of civil society. We deliberately created a space where things were allowed to fail or radically change and we harvested learning all the way along.

Basic design for extraordinary conversations

Chris Corrigan

This is often when those of us who are consulting facilitators are brought into an organization. Among other things, participants have to know: What the clear purpose is. What is required of them to participate well. The second phase is hosting and harvesting.

Disintermediated sensemaking

Chris Corrigan

When people are creating data, let them tag what it means, for example, in the decision making process we used last weekend, participants tagged their thoughts with numbers, and tagged their numbers with thoughts, which meant that they ordered their own data.

A couple of great days in Montreal

Chris Corrigan

I was here for the conference of the Canadian Evaluation Society, where I participated on a panel on innovative dialogue methods (and yes I noted the irony in my remarks) and later led a World Cafe where I presented some of the sense-making processes I’ve been working on.

Wow!

Michelle Laurie

That is how I felt after doing two graphic facilitation workshops back to back. The last half of day two isn’t drawn yet so in the meantime, a quick summary is that we spend most of the afternoon doing collective visual harvests of what we learned.
