Effective groups

I recently used the effective groups model (Escorihuela, 2015) for the first time in a facilitation. The goal was to diagnose the situation of a collective of artists regarding their internal organization.

This framework helps visualizing the different pillars in an organization (Results, People, Processes) and highlighting the importance of balance between them. I especially like its grounding in complexity theory which provides useful analytical lens.

As for our session, maybe not surprising result: the group was very focused on the need for a better structure to achieve their goals, but less attention was given to people and their needs. We therefore did some extra work on that!
