Which workshop?

Check out these two workshop descriptions and you'll see the same structure:

Not just the same structure, but the same materials too. What's the difference?

The difference is context and objectives:

  • In the transformation mapping workshop, the participants share a context – their organisation – and the workshop's objective is to formulate a response to that organisation's needs
  • In the practitioner workshop there may be little or no shared context; participants are there to experience and practice, preparing to facilitate change in their client organisations

These goals need not be mutually exclusive, so why make the distinction? A discussion about objectives beforehand is always valuable. Expectations should clear on both sides, it's important to get the right set of people in the room, and if it's left until the day of the workshop before anyone starts to think about what will happen afterwards, it may be too late.
