Workshops: Probe! Outcomes, Stories, and Experiments
Described by one participant as ”A3 for the 2020’s", the Probe! workshop is a standalone and enhanced version of our strategy workshops’ Elaboration (ideation and experimentation) activity, as covered in chapter 4 of the Agendashift book. It features one of our most popular resources, the Agendashift Experiment A3 Template, and exciting new material from the Impact! and Wholehearted:OKR workshops.
Topics and exercises:
- Stories and their authentic situations of need
- Hypotheses “hard” and “soft”
- Just-in-time option selection
- Challenge Mapping¹
- Generating 15% Solutions²
- Framing ideas as hypotheses
- Developing experiments with the Agendashift Experiment A3 Template (see below)
- Patterns: Meaning, Measure, Method, IdOO, and Right-to-Left Strategy Deployment
¹See the Ideal, Obstacles, Outcomes (IdOO) pattern page for some Challenge Mapping references
²15% Solutions: Discover and Focus on What Each Person Has the Freedom and Resources to Do Now (liberatingstructures.com), Henri Lipmanowicz and Keith McCandless inspired by Prof. Gareth Morgan
