Use the In/Tension modeling tool to meaningfully engage and build alignment among your stakeholders

You’ve heard the wise saying about going far and going fast? Of course it would be better if the grand group of stakeholders for our projects were meaningfully involved and actively engaged in setting up the project for success. But that’s like herding cats, right? And possibly the most expensive meeting of the year. Even if you were able to get the whole group of “deciders” in a room for 3 hours: then what? 

Join Dan Klyn for a half-day workshop that equips practitioners with everything you need to attain durable stakeholder agreement as the outcome of such a session.


Next workshop: TBD

Take this workshop if you want to:

  • Learn the research and facilitation techniques for running a stakeholder alignment session with groups from 4 to 40 (or more) stakeholders
  • Learn the tools for building an In/Tension model during the session
  • Use the model “live” with the session participants
