We’ve done a lot of strategic planning and creativity capacity building through both our paid consulting work and our non-profit once-a-quarter and the most interesting conversation is about who to invite. Inevitably, the contact person names the Board and the ED (or the C-suite in the case of for profit organizations). What about the staff, volunteers, clients, funders, suppliers, etc is our response. Many OD researchers and practitioners are passionate about large group forums which bring the whole system in the room as it unleashes creativity, capacity and energy. Who do you invite?
