Run the right session with the Workshop Strategy System.

How do you know what workshop to run, and when?

You’ll always choose the right approach with our Workshop Strategy System. Ask your team a simple set of questions to help you find the most useful category of tactics.

It’s the perfect tool to help you plan your first session when you aren’t sure where to begin, or to get unstuck if you feel lost in the middle of a project.

The easy-to-use strategy makes running workshops feel a lot more accessible.

– James Lindeman, Design Director.

The clear steps are great at encouraging people to think about outcomes and structures of sessions.

– Rachael Shah, Delivery Manager

Clear step-by-step instructions. No jargon.

There are a lot of long-winded and confusing workshop guides out there. You just need the concise steps to run the workshop. Not a wall of text.

Each workshop exercise fits on the back of a card, so it's easily scannable.

The jargon-free instructions are easy to follow, for novices and experts alike.

They’re really useful for mentoring others as I can share the right technique for their particular workshop objective. It's great for being spontaneous and reacting to workshop situations better.

– Brad Legge, Agile Consultant

Workshop Tactics is the first thing I reach for when presented with a design problem and the path to a solution is always in there. I can't live without them.

– Tom Newton, Principal Designer

Each tactic shows you how to prepare and follow up your session

You've just finished a great Workshop Tactics session and someone asks “so what next?”

Each tactic has guidance on what to do before and afterwards - so you never get stuck.

This also helps you plan longer sessions, as you can see how the tactics link together.

I'd recommend Workshop Tactics. The structures are tried and tested and work really well.

– Richard Sullivan, Agile Coach

They're easy to understand, they look great - and most importantly, they fit in my coat pocket.

– Nick Richardson, Product Manager

Plan a workshop away from your screen

In this remote-first world, we are inundated with digital distractions.

Rest your eyes from your screen and plan a workshop anywhere - with the knowledge you have the best exercises and a robust system to hand.

“The team browse the cards together to get clarity on an approach - which you can’t do when it’s hidden away on a website.”

Simon Hurst, UX Researcher

A tactic for every stage of a project

The seven categories of Workshop Tactics are structured to follow the design process, with colour-coded edges to help you find what you need quickly.

Goals
Give direction by creating goals

Agree on a desired end-state to work towards, so daily activity moves you in the right direction.

Understand
Understand problems in detail

Unpack problems and discover insights with critical- and analytical-thinking exercises.

Frame
Frame challenges as solvable questions

Articulate your problem or experiment in a clear way, so it’s easier to start solving or testing.

Ideas
Generate and develop ideas

Encourage the creation of lots of ideas, then develop the best into actionable plans.

Evaluate
Evaluate the good, bad and the ugly

Assess ideas or problems against certain criteria to understand how to improve or solve them.

Decide
Prioritise and make decisions together

Prioritise ideas or problems based on what's important in order to decide what to focus on.

Discuss
Foster meaningful discussion

Give structure to conversation, and create a chance for your team to reflect on what's going well and what's not.

Technique
Master facilitation techniques

Have the core techniques to hand to ensure you become a meeting master in no time.

Session
Run pre-made sessions

Use the session cards to learn how tactics can be combined to create larger, in-depth workshops.

I love having all the tactics in your hand, and not having to spend ages working out the best strategy.

I used Workshop Tactics to plan a meeting SEVEN minutes before it started (i, err, forgot...) and it couldn't have gone better!
