We facilitated the leadership team in identifying primary developmental issues, including the information technology opportunities for qualitative data archives and redefining their relationship to their university home.


We led a series of planning sessions with the leadership team resulting in a two day large group design that would be affordable and effective. It was a stretch for their culture, but not disconnected from their basic values. It was designed to maximize creative dialogue among their staff, board and other relevant stakeholders.


One hundred participants projected the future environment, identified the strengths of the center and developed viable options for the leadership team and board to use in their strategic planning. New partnerships were formed and innovative ideas germinated among international stakeholders. We use large systems interventions frequently to support inter-organizational collaboration. Gathering all parties together creates energy and ideas in an efficient lively event.
