Marketing Text Development of an innovatory strategy in raising VET providers capacity to build and design trainings based upon practical experiences. Aim of this Sensing programme was to jointly identity organisational implementation and learning strategies that are efficient, working and lead to change, and thus enable the Network to learn more about using person-centred approaches at all levels of an organisation as a central condition for changing institutional and cultural structures.
A sensing workshop, as prototyped in the course of the New Paths to InclUsion project, is A way of starting a change initiative through a process of consultation which brings people together over a period of two days to explore their understandings more deeply. It can be the first step of a journey into the U, or it may be undertaken alongside other approaches such as interviewing or sensing journeys (see our Online Knowledge centre and/or the website of the presencing institute at: www.presencing.com).
The purpose of a Sensing Workshop is to highlight what the organisation is doing, and to consider if it is meeting its intended objectives? It also intends to discover if the planned trajectory of an organisation makes sense to the people it serves. A series of clear questions which identify what the organisation wants to discover need to be defined to focus the workshop.
Target group VET and or system service providers aiming to depart on a deep organisational change/transformation process and which is looking for guidance on how to start
Result Three partner organisations, who to a varying degree already had made experiences employing person-centred approaches: APEHM in Luxembourg, Balance in Vienna (Austria), Leben mit Behinderung Hamburg (LMBH) (Germany) had committed themselves to a process of change to become a more person centred organisation using the model of Theory U. The work culminated in a two day Sensing Workshop which was delivered in each organisation. The three participating partners each held such an event, where between 30 and 60 stakeholders were able to explore the key questions through individual and group activities. In the Online Knowledge Centre you can find detailed accounts of their learning journeys.
