Why are you here? Nadim : Codesign public spaces. Changr. Tesh - HSI future student. Going Horizontal - 10min.
Context : Prototype a first training in Belgium for Sam’s book “Going Horizontal” (Team : Ria from Belgium, Nil from Barcelona and Phoebe from UK (nadine was a participant)
What are we curious to know? One highlight and something to be improved.
Sam: I came with the question - How can I write a book as an individual (in a world where this is a commodity) and steward this as a commons? The team hosted me while co-hosting the workshop.
The book,community, needs, and the field are bigger than the book! Self-declared interest to the content
Collaborative practices, transparency, money as a taboo vs put the finances in the middle. And we had enough money to cover our expenses, including travel. Budget for the workshop was discussed as an example. (Embodying its ? content.)
2 tools to create before next workshop in Qc city : Self-assessment tool 5 steps of personal practices (1 page)
What training do we need as a Percolab. What are we missing in Percolab? 2 practices for the retreat: Feedback Trigger (déclencheur, pitons) Log - and share it with a buddy
Is Going Horizontal any different from Self-Management workshops we have done already? We need to find a way to merge/include.
Untouched questions…? Did we have any reflections from the participants in the way we do things at Percolab? Clarify that the book is not so much about Percolab
Collaboration Concordia 45 min Context : We study organisations. Percolab is a special organization. We found percolab a knowledge intensive organization that is different the idea that everything is shared and negotiated. Intense engagement. Members and org. And client. Practices and outcomes We want to change some aspects of our MBA program. Some aspect of social impact. Larger within community and CSR - i can talk conceptually, but when we have someone from an organization like this it makes a big impact and enables students to broaden own horizons. Students are interested just don’t know where to look. The classes we teach is about showing students there is a different way of looking businesses. A notion of developing pedagogy around facilitation.
There is a fair amount of literature around SM and flat organisations but it happens rarely. We as a group are interested in how you are in the process of creating practices for yourselves and clients to make idea of GH alive - How to make this #Goinghorizontal practice alive?
Interest in 2 levels: Classroom level: We want to offer our students to see “what is out there”. A lot of people interested, ut they don’t know where to look. We want to show them there is another way
Facilitation literacy: Pedagogy around facilitation as a needed skill for management. A lot of organizations talk about self-management and flat organizing. How have you managed -or are in the process of managing- to create the practices that makes going horizontal possible?
Looking at things from Stakeholder Theory.
Questions: How you go from a concept to a living practices?
Request: Record team meeting - to find patterns on how do you develop. Interview Collaborators, Clients, etc-
How is this practices can be propagated? How you go from a concept to a living practices?
Time frame: From now till end of summer. Get interviews done by august 31st.
Outcomes: Create a case study -owned by a Private Institution-
There is the classroom level and research around facilitation. Zoe would be here for the summer and later as well. We would like to recorded team meetings. To find patterns of how team meetings go. How do you develop this entire process. Looking at it from a stakeholder theory perspective. An organization doesn’t exist exclusively but with people around. Would like to interview including clients. Understand this idea of “negotiated practice/outcomes”. How is organization learning and propagating it.
Two projects : Case Study (teaching case) & Research project (transcripts) Time scale : Outcome : Case study published (in english)
What would this go into? One part of output = teaching case. Managing stakeholder relationships or creating SM teams. We would like someone from Percolab would be there and see how students engage with the material. That is when most of learning with students happen. We have a case analysis format, but the experiential knowledge comes from people from organization. Published with IVY and Harvard business publishing - go case study route. Organization decides if organizational name is used. Etc. transparent process. All information would be there.
Research side is confidential unless you want Percolab to be named. Transcripts shared back to us. Signed off by us.
Bilingual meetings. How does that affect the process? Zoe is bilingual. Output is in english so there will be translations.
One of things interesting to us in this is the reflection of our own practices. This teaching case if its owned by harvard business we can use it in our workshops and publish it on our blog? Write a separate or similar product that could be shared.
What could be Zoe’s role, as we never have observers in our meetings? I would feel comfortable participating. You seem open and kind, I am a reserved person. We also have unplanned meetings, just be aware of it. There will be also interviews, and the snowball approach so one interview leads to another meeting / information. Zoe will map this space out - and be the observer in the office space. Understanding that we don’t have a define space. To define the space emotionally, etc. Data gathered is how this organisation negotiates inside as well as outside. Two meetings Zoe by herself - and then interviews Observation, be in the space, talk with people. Zoe can come to some workshops, like the one Paul is giving. Schedule : on Tuesdays but she can come, depending on other activities (Zoe has other classes). What is Rajr role? There are two elements at odds? : observing and be a participant. How to put them together? Building knowledge around management - to initiate conversations. - student. Proposals from Helene Can we imagine having something more agile on the go. Shared learning together. Zoe what about having each week a short article of your learning of percolab practice or organization. As snapshot. Content on the go. It’s an interesting process. - R. a great idea. Zoe Blog article. All the cases we read about are huge companies. Just now i am realizing there are so many other options, right here in montreal. Especially people studying business who don’t fit into corporate mentality. Maybe you come here and we are taking notes it’s teamwork. Maybe you can work on it after the meeting its something for your work. Make it pretty . could be great. Hélène will be Case study budy Clearance - every two weeks one of us from the team here and share some data we have gathered. And how it could be helpful in the team.
