Few challenges are more complex than leading an organization. The stakes are high, and the consequences are real if you get it wrong. Problem solving is not just about identifying the right solution, but also identifying the right problem.
Who can better help someone solve a problem than a group of their peers? Peers understand the issues but see things from a different perspective.
Although the approach is similar to coaching, this is actually a facilitated group discussion.
The goal is idea generation, not decision-making or persuasion.
You need: a “Problem Owner”, that is someone who wants to solve a problem; a group of “Peers”, that is, experienced people in a similar but different function, role or situation; and a Facilitator to guide the conversation.
The Problem Owner presents and explains the issue. The “Peers” strive to understand it, then propose possible causes and possible solutions. The Facilitator guides the ensures everyone gets a chance to speak while staying on topic and in the time-boxes. Finally, the Problem Owner shares which ideas seems promising.
At the next meeting of the group, the Problem Owner shares what they did and how it played out to maximize learning for everybody involved!
I have been using this format for several years to help a group of mostly Swiss executives to find better solutions to their challenges. You can learn this approach in my Certified Scrum Master training classes. Maybe it can help you?
