Evaluation rigour for harvesting

Chris Corrigan

To begin creating that,I was at work for most of the morning putting together a meta-framework, consisting of questions our core team needs to answer. In Art of Hosting terms, we might call this a harvesting plan. Evaluation (and harvesting) rigour is a design consideration.

Continuing My Ecocycle Experimentation

Full Circle Associates

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

Basic design for extraordinary conversations

Chris Corrigan

This is often when those of us who are consulting facilitators are brought into an organization. The second phase is hosting and harvesting. A further consideration for hosting and harvesting is to balance the three domains of work, relationship and co-learning.

Disintermediated sensemaking

Chris Corrigan

Have leaders and teams pour over the raw data and the signification frameworks that people have used and translate it into strategy. 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.

“Not to fight with one another”

Chris Corrigan

The team I was working with are trying to reinvent the way this community is engaged. 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.

Insights on the nature of the times

Chris Corrigan

We have just been harvesting out of a World Cafe that was held on the question of &# What time it is in the world?&# We used a design I have been using with teams and communities that are needing to do deep sensing. I listened with a poet’s ear tuned to the harvest and this is what I heard: You have to be ready to die on the hill atop which you have heard the deepest call of the world.
