Naturefriends International wanted to have their annual strategy process to be accompanied by Denkstatt Social Design consultants and to use this occasion for strengthening the spirit within the team.

It was necessary to promote contents that were of prime importance for the next years work and to observe the dynamics in the team while this process took place.

What was the challenge?

In spite of the clear assignment to what the outcome of the two-days seminar should be (road maps, to do lists, etc) we had to keep the process flexible enough in order to adjust it to possibly unexpected arising disturbances.

Different needs of the management and the team members for example were motives for redesigning the workshop on the spot.

What has been done?

The architecture can be described as below:

  • preliminary talks: tracking the developments of last year, learn about the present situation in the team, get to know the plans of the management and the key aspects for the subsequent year
  • designing the workshop
  • forwarding of the agenda to the whole team
  • two-days workshop
  • minutes and feedback-talks

What was the concret benefit?

When working with social design consultants the client does not only get experts with extensive moderation skills but also with profound knowledge in conflict management, group dynamics and organizational development.

By the means of using different methods the consultants get a comprehensive impression of the team within a very short period of time that they provide as a feedback to the whole group.

Feedback of Naturefriend’s International

„denkstatt was a reliable partner over the last years and always found out something that we were not able to see ourselves. Somehow they always found a blind spot.”
