A revival of an old link from model.report –


Because I’m again thinking about the links and connection between the MG Taylor Method and Future Search, and Beer’s Team Syntegrity, and indeed Tavistock and Trist and Jacuqes and post-WW2 army leader selection.

Anyway, some more collective/large group facilitation links:

D5.1 Plan for Innovation Procedures in ROADIDEA (bear with me!) – part of a European funded project (5 million euros?!) to study the potential of the European transport service sector for innovations, to analyse available data sources, to reveal existing problems and bottlenecks, and to develop better methods and models to be utilized in service platforms. These were to be capable of providing new, innovative transport services for various transport user groups, while trialling a formal innovation process to achieve this. The central issue was the Innovation Process itself and its value in undertaking this important task.
