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

In Art of Hosting terms, we might call this a harvesting plan. I think in the Art of Hosting and Art of Harvesting communities we get the first principle quite well, that participatory initiatives are, by their nature, developmental.

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. What is the process of others capturing and harvesting content? The second is the 7th annual Rosviz graphic facilitation workshop.

Disintermediated sensemaking

Chris Corrigan

In plain terms, the kind of system we are in is connected to the ways of knowing about it and the ways of interpreting that knowledge. What I learned was the term “disintermediated sensemaking” which is actually the radical shift I was looking for.

Chris Corrigan

I was able to see the crude boundaries of traditional evaluation methods very clearly and was able to see that most of the work I do in the world – facilitating strategic conversations – was actually a core practice of developmental evaluation.

How to be a Network Gardener

Net-Map Toolbox

They are called “Network Facilitators”, “Network Organizers” or even “Network Managers” But I think the term “Network Gardener” describes much more tanglibly, what those people do who help large and dispersed networks of people grow toward common goals. Harvest: Your network can bear amazing fruit. But if there is no one to harvest it, it will be there just for a moment and then be gone.

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. Like John, my experience of the process was incredibly productive and the plans were excellent, and sustainable over the long term because there was a huge amount of buy-in from the co-creation process.
