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?

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.

What harvesting tool works best?

Chris Corrigan

A colleague emailed today and asked me this question: “which tool do you use when you have to analyse the content of your harvest with groups?&#. The principle would be this: “Participatory process, participatory harvest, simple process, simple harvest&# The primary tool I use in complex decision making domains is diversity.

Some World Cafe tips

Chris Corrigan

“Typical” facilitated sessions imprint people with the pattern that someone will take notes while everyone else talks. What emerged was indeed a conversation and not a boring reporting out of things that everyone knew anyway.

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

Chris Corrigan

A recent report by Strategy& suggests being more agile requires a clear focus on two attributes of ‘strategic responsiveness’ and ‘organizational flexibility’ being built into the design of the larger organizations so they can move far quicker as conditions change.

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

There is no consultants report here. Secondly it gets at concrete things that the team can do to improve scenarios and third it harvest preferences and not simple yes/no decisions which are not appropriate for this kind of work.

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. We are treading into new territory as we explore the role of visuals in design and facilitation. We are looking to push our boundaries (and yours) in terms of the role of visuals in design and facilitation. Can visual methods help reporting out be more meaningful? What is the process of others capturing and harvesting content?

Exploring future possibilities by mapping “dispositionalities”

Chris Corrigan

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.

“Not to fight with one another”

Chris Corrigan

I am not a fan of giving people groundrules, because as a facilitator it puts me in the position of enforcer, and gives people an out for how the behave towards one another. People reported that this was the best meeting the community had in a long time.

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. Our process ran like this: Prepare a harvest wall with five blank spots for reporting, each with one of the five topic headings. Overnight, compile the reports from each of the five groups and print a copy for each participant. Groups met and then reported back.

Inappropriate action planning makes me sad

And no action plans, no next steps, no commitments, no necessary reports. A few months later there was a harvest document lovingly stewarded by a few people. Conversation Facilitation Learning Last year in Slovenia, a group of Art of Hosting practitioners gatherd for a week at a well loved 17th century manor to be together. I suppose you could call it a “conference” but we all called it a “Learning Village.” ” And it was a learning village.

Note: The survey data reported below represents a small sample due to low completion rates (10 respondents, one of whom is an organizer). We had reports from 17 groups and one individual on what they were doing both for WSF and in general. The language sub groups were the most utilized, and few reported using the wiki/Google Translate option (80% did not use it, but the 20% who did found it useful. Nancy found it very useful as facilitator.)
