Develop strategies for operating in a range of plausible yet unpredictable futures.
Please note that the video above was developed for a summer 2020 professional development activity called DigPINS – it was not created for this particular resource, so there is mention of a synchronous session and things to sign up for – this was part of the summer 2020 course.
According to liberatingstructures.com, “you can help a diverse group quickly test the viability of current strategies and build its capacity to respond quickly to future challenges. This Liberating Structure prepares a group for strategy making. It does not produce a plan to be implemented as designed but rather builds resilience: the capacity to actively shape the system and be prepared to respond to surprise. This means being better able to see different futures unfolding, better prepared to act in a distributed fashion, and more ready to absorb disruptions resiliently.”
Spaces for participants to list uncertainties and create axis to explore quadrants.
The below is text adapted for virtual use, taking text mostly from the original description Critical Uncertainties as described on the Liberating Structures website.
Synchronously, this could take up to two hours. With asynchronous components, you could take more time to reflect asynchronously, and the synchronous session can be 45 minutes, or so, in breakout rooms, before regrouping.
