Match people to the task

…a tough problem that affects a large and diverse group of people.

✣  ✣  ✣

You want to make sure the group as a whole can address the problem.

  • No issue is too large or too small so long as the task is within the capability of those who attend.
  • The more far-reaching your objective, the greater your need for a broad selection of diverse players.
  • People who are in but not in the loop can and probably will undermine any plan proposed by the others.
  • All decision makers and implementers must share the problem and its solution.
  • Convening groups to do tasks with key actors missing results in a well-known ritual widely reported in the news.

Therefore:

Include all key actors in the dialogue and co-create a plastic plan.
