7 Reviewing NTF Working Recommendations: Discussion Questions: What did you particularly like about these recommendations? What suggestions to you have for changes to these recommendations?
8 What is a Knowledge Café? “A means for a group of people to have an open, creative conversation on a topic of mutual interest to gain a deeper collective understanding of the subject and the issues involved” (Wikepedia)
9 Why use Knowledge Cafés? Each participant represents an aspect of the whole system’s diversity As each person has the chance to connect in conversation, more of the intelligence inherent in the group becomes accessible.
10 How does a Knowledge Café work? Sit at a table assigned a recommendation you would like to discuss One person has been assigned to be the “table facilitator” to stay behind tell the table’s story Change tables after each of the three 25 minute “rotations” At the end of the three rounds there will be a debrief
11 What happens during the conversations? Each member is asked to offer their individual perspective and listen for what is emerging “in the middle of the table” Open up the conversation Use the tablecloths to record the emerging ideas Each time you travel to a new table you bring with you the threads of the last round and interweave them with those brought by others
12 Building Momentum: A Blueprint for Action Discussion What do you think are the key challenges to making this recommendation a reality? What do you think are the key enablers to make this recommendation a reality? How important is this recommendation? (Rate on a scale of 1-5 with 1 being not important and 5 very important) Who needs to take the lead to initiate action on this recommendation? (Round 3 only)
