Goal

To get a group that has a vision but is not able to move to the implementation phase.


The goal of the group's work is to look at everything the organization is doing and redesign it where necessary. ... I figured the next phase was to do the hard slogging of looking at each component of the vision and designing programs to make it happen, but the group has been avoiding this hard work like the plague! ... How can, or when does a content-neutral, servant of the group get directive with a group? I can remind them of their goal (I can lead a horse to water) but I can't make them do it...or can I...

Using a visual timeline on the wall may help the group see the relationship of the timeframe and deadline.

After

Usual or Expected Outcomes: The group becomes unstuck

Potential pitfalls: group stays stuck or avoids creating the deadlines

How success is evaluated: The implementation process begins.
