Crucial ingredients for collective action

Petra Kuenkel writes on her blog that: “Innovative approaches and new solutions often derive from people’s ability to dialogue and partner for the future. The quality of how we do this matters. People implement what they have helped to create.” She lists the following ingredients for successful collective action:

  1. Understand the system
  2. Create resonance
  3. Prepare for the common ground
  4. Build a strong “container”
  5. Get the stakeholder system into a conversation with itself
  6. Get the system into the room
  7. Develop a diagnose of the current reality together
  8. Allow differences to emerge, but in a structured way
  9. Design a structured integration process
  10. Create task orientation
  11. Bring in expertise as needed
