Visualising the Workshop Plan

00 Plan as ListIt is of course common sense and good practice to brief workshop attendees on the plan for the day. This may take the form of a list of steps and is often presented as such.

However practical, a simple list is neither memorable nor suggestive of an overall approach.

 

To overcome these problems why not present the steps graphically and let the image reinforce how the workshop might flow. There are many metaphors to draw from (excuse the pun) – the example here combines several – a path to be followed, a goal to be achieved (scaling the peak) and a happy outcome (chequered flag and a new dawn!).

01 Workshop Routemap

This is left pinned up throughout the workshop and constantly referred to. As each step is completed it can be marked (in this example with green ticks) and the next step selected.
