In a fast changing and increasingly complex world, it will be the groups that can adapt, unafraid to try new ideas that will be most effective. Those able to flex and change quickly as the need requires, without losing cohesion or strategic direction, will be the ones that lead the way.

This event will use a combination of Rapid Assessment and Gamification techniques, so you can plot your organisation/group on the ‘Ready to Collaborate Index’.

Using updated cards exploring the organisation’s culture and the fully integrating 2019 ‘norm’ group with over 400 contributors, you will get to know where your organisation stands!

The takeaway from this event:

With confidence you will see where your organisation/group sits relative to the other 400 that contributed to the ‘norm’ group.  You will fall into one of the 6 Zones; the question is which one?

Zone 1: This organisation needs help, not knowing how to...

Zone 2: This organisation can collaborate and is able to show signs…

Zone 3: This organisation uses several strategies to collaborate … but it’s not…

Zone 4: This organisation uses several strategies to collaborate and it knows…

Zone 5: This organisation uses several strategies to collaborate and it knows…

Zone 6: Come and see for yourselves!!!
