A visioning workshop is a productive way of helping organisational leadership to elaborate and outline different scenarios - and understand together what ‘success’ actually looks like. Understand your choices before you jump into decisions and actions. 

Strategy is all about making choices. Arguably, if the strategy does not lead to clear decisions being taken and choices made, then it is not strategic.

In order to make these choices, we need to be clear on the different scenarios and courses of action available.

It follows that strategy development is about outlining the possible scenarios and then understanding what achieving these scenarios means in terms of activities, costs, available skills, risks, and challenges.

It is important that we express the scenarios in terms of outcomes – actual changes in observable behaviours. In other words, if we achieve a given scenario, what does this look like on the ground? What will people be doing? How will people be behaving? What will be happening around them?

Once we have articulated these changes in behaviours and situation, we are in a position to work backwards and elaborate the activities that would be necessary in order to achieve a given outcome.

This, in turn, allows for a process of understanding risks, challenges, costs, skills and skills gaps, and so on. The organisation is then in a position to choose which strategic path to follow and develop concrete implementation plans.

Steps and practicalities: outcomes and outputs
The envisioning workshop (2 mornings), takes place with the team of coordinators, which assesses scenarios in terms of outcomes desired in 10 years’ time - with a Training of Trainers (TOT) component.

As a space of psychological safety, the visioning workshop stimulates to share, listen, exchange, question, tell of mistakes, try, play, reimagine, innovate.

It is very hands-on, working on the wall to co-create. In some ways it resembles a Theory of Change (TOC) workshop.

Consolidation of the outputs is in a visual, financial report, including a strategic implementation (investment in development) plan.

The outcomes of the studio and presentation are consolidated in a bespoke report for your institute, decision-makers and coordinator.

Visual presentation of the outputs takes place in a session of deep listening, dialogue and exchange with the entire portfolio team. Strategic questions that the coordinator and advisor came across, are brought to the table, to better understand values and vision for the institute’s education.

The presentation to peers/colleagues/management has a very prominent Training of Trainers (TOT) component, to prepare the ground among all course coordinators, for possible re-designs.

This bespoke envisioning workshop includes
- The design for the bespoke envisioning workshop, together with two indpendent senior advisors who are experienced in TOC workshops

- Delivery guided by our Studio’s independent senior advisor and lead, and remotely supported by a second independent senior advisor.

- As relevant other local experts may be invited too for parts of the envisioning workshop, to ask really good questions to your team

- Reporting back to coordinators in charge on the outcomes, including management/director

- Brief visualisation of the outputs on the wall and key outcomes as a PDF report.
