For a breakthrough experience that leads to action-oriented decisions, workshops are often more effective than classic modes of interaction. Larger groups of stakeholders can be proactively engaged in a single forum through which participants gain deeper and improved understanding of business challenges and issues. Current thinking is challenged, and differences are identified and voiced in real-time. New insights are generated, providing a foundation for possible solutions. Collective alignment is built for the way forward. Commitment to action is established and a realistic roadmap is agreed upon.
