High-performing teams function best on collaborative brain power to rapidly advance work and add value by operating in a Big Room. Effective Big Rooms are only possible with the mindset and behaviors that break down traditional silos which allow for cross-functional team collaboration and better decision-making.  Liberating Structures are simple facilitation tools based in complexity science which can help us meet better, collaborate better and also make sure that every voice gets heard. Through this Effective Big Room course, we will present a wholistic review of the concepts, benefits, purpose, and implementation considerations of a Big Room.  This course aims to leave you with some practical tools to improve collaboration and drive transparency within your team which can optimize project outcomes for all parties involved.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Participants will understand the purpose and benefits of implementing a Big Room approach to improving project outcomes.
  2. Participants will understand the characteristics and behaviors of a Big Room Team including aspects of effective facilitation. 
  3. Participants will be introduced to Liberating Structures, including practical examples and where they are most effective.
  4. Participants will be provided practical experience using Liberating Structures facilitation tools to help improve their future Big Room experiences
