Facilitating groups


Groupthink works against breakthroughs

Too often a good idea dies too soon from ‘been there done that’ comments, or fails to thrive because everyone is seeing the same horizon from the same vantage point. Effective brainstorming is about seeing things in different ways. In an organization, it can be achieved by putting together people from different specialties or departments, of various ages, from assorted cultures, individuals who have different stakes in the future.

We construct ‘diagonal groups’, a format we’ve developed to generate fresh thinking in a short period of time. It’s like having a number of focus groups running simultaneously to:

  • Identify issues and ideas at the start of a project 
  • Validate plans shortly before implementation 
  • Build engagement and ease implementation
