Day 1 – consent on Roadmap priorities
We will start with a plenary orientation session to introduce the topic and have general introductions of the participants sharing their experience with this topic. After the break we will present the results of phase one. The orientation phase will end with a round table discussion on the main prioritization areas and continue in parallel sub-sessions to discuss discrepancies and challenges. A problem solving/team building methodology will be adopted following a simple seven step process:
The process is represented graphically below:
Day 2 – action plan supported by stakeholders
The second day will be used to further generate and detail actions in three categories: policy actions, business development actions and R&D questions to work on. The group will be split to three sub groups according to own identification. The day will be structured in three sessions:
Idea generation: The idea generation will start with a few minutes of individual reflection of the orientation and idea generation, after which the participants will join their groups in front of their ‘own’ worksheets to continue. The groups will do two rounds of idea generation around the worksheets, changing from one sheet to another, reading others ideas and adding their own until each group had visited each three worksheet twice.
Analysis: The sub groups will be tasked to collaboratively group or cluster the initial ideas on their ‘own’ worksheet, without direct influence from the facilitators. The groups will be given rules to discuss and clarify unclear ideas, group similar ideas thematically into clusters, and develop headlines for the clusters on new notes. Additionally, they will be asked to prioritize actions and to illustrate a critical path between the actions towards achieving the goals selected at the start.
Consent: The drafting of the timeline will be a plenary session again. For each group a spokesperson will position the actions (idea clusters) on the roadmap canvas. The spokesperson of each group placed the actions to the timeline, while giving a three-minute presentation on the logic of the critical path and key assumptions. The workshop will finish with a wrap up presentation picking up the key goals and important themes on the discussion and finishing off with the next phases and when the stakeholders can expect further communication.
