How does the facilitation process work?

Developing a plan for you through our co-design process includes the following steps:

  • Pre-planning: defining of stakeholder expectations and needs;
  • Pre-planning discussions with the executive team and collation of relevant information;
  • Creating prioritised strategic goals and outcomes for the team to align with;
  • Confirming your vision and values so that the team understands the importance to the organisation;
  • Capturing key activities and sub-activities for implementation;
  • Identifying structural and resourcing gaps to support the activities;
  • Clarifying responsibilities for deployment which builds ownership; and
  • Setting strategic milestones to review and measure success.
