Implementing a strategy, offering a new service or improving a process? It often introduces new terminology, specific Jargon or even a foreign language. Why is finding out what common language to use in an organization is an absolute group necessity? To avoid misunderstanding or to establish “real understanding” What do we want to realize, achieve, improve, construct? How does it look like? How does it feel? ? Is there a warranty? What are the key functions?
During a workshop we use several techniques and exercises to demonstrate what needs to be done and understood. We are used to work on: culture differences, giving and receiving feedback, defining a Service, and with the end goal in mind: what is the difference between intention and commitment? We might bring in new terminology (Good Practices, Kepner Tregoe, LEAN) and will document/match the meaning of the specific words that are common in the organisation.
