Assessing collaborative potential: Initial Screening Worksheet
Give three concrete conflict management or decision making situations which the members of the group perceive as characterised by complexity and controversies, and where a project or process oriented approach would be a successful way forward.
Rank these three situations in order of perceived need for collaboration, with 1 being the situation with the greatest need.
Rate each situation (theoretically) on a 1 to 5 scale according to the following screening criteria.
1. Number and nature of participants
Few parties, clearly identified
Many parties, or parties poorly identified
2. History of the situation
|Newly emerging, little history||A||B||C|
|Long history, or volatile history|
What kind of situations will you work with at home, where the collaborative potential is important to assess? Note that it could be both external processes and/or internally in the organisation you yourself would be working in? Which impact might your assessment have on choosing a project management or process management approach?
