Developing Durable Stakeholder Agreement with In/Tension Models

You’ve heard the wise saying about going far and going fast? Of course it would be better if the grand group of stakeholders for our projects were meaningfully involved and actively engaged in setting up the project for success. But that’s like herding cats, right? And possibly the most expensive meeting of the year. Even if you were able to get the whole group of “deciders” in a room for three hours: then what? Join Dan Klyn for a half-day workshop that equips practitioners with everything they need to attain durable stakeholder agreement as the outcome of such a session.

This process is especially relevant in consulting contexts, and has been refined in commercial engagements with more than 100 clients over 7 years of Klyn’s information architecture practice at The Understanding Group (TUG). Attendees will learn the research and facilitation techniques for running a stakeholder alignment session with groups from four to forty (or more) stakeholders, and will be given the tools for building an In/Tension model during the session, and using the model “live” with the session participants. Workshop concludes with some show-and-tell regarding visualization modalities for operationalizing the model.
