Design For Dissent is a series of mini-workshop to learn new approaches and skills for better product development and team management.
This is a 3 min 30 sec video made for the first Design for Dissent workshops in May.
The new workshops in October use roughly the same structure with some improvements based on feedback.
90% of Design for Dissent participants gave either Excellent or Very Good feedback.
100% described the online workshops as Very Friendly or Friendly.
“Relaxed environment and approach but deeply considered in framing, content and structure”.
Understanding why and how dissent creates more resilient and creative organisations for the New Next.
This is a practice-based workshop on how to use dissent to encourage and enable diversity and divergence. Using dissent to create new spaces for innovation.
This workshop is a place to understand why dissent is needed and to practice dissent in conversation. The online schedule for the 5 day workshop is shown in the graphic.
The offline content will be about understanding and the online content is about practicing together. The activities are about listening to dissent positively and designing how to speak of dissent to be heard and remembered.
This is a new workshop for 2020 and I am not offering complete solutions. What I would like to create is a space to understand and share. What works for you will depend on the contexts of where you work and who you with and for. Sharing ideas with other participants is a way of mapping out what might work in your place. This is about starting a voyage with other people.
£49 per participant for 5 days of 30-60 minute online workshops.
Plus over 3 hours of audio content and 2 x 30 minute PowerPoint talks on Post Normal and New Next.
Most of the workshop activities are in small groups of 2-6 people and use of video is invited but not required.
