    How Does an FIE Work?

    We create engagement among stakeholders. Then alignment and ownership.

    Here's How it Works

    We use virtual conference technology and the design levers (packaged in a software application) to conduct a series of contemplative inquiries.

     

    The process of collaboration might be described as “the action of working with others to produce or create something” unforeseen in any one department or silo.

     

    In short, we apply process design to achieve a meeting of the minds across multiple stakeholders.

    Where are Facilitated Interactive Engagements Held?

    • Anywhere
    • Anytime


    In a face to face engagement, we use the internet’s broad connectivity to hold “engagements” no matter where people are. You could choose 500 stakeholders in a large meeting room, or 12 critical stakeholders online in a series of calls.

    These engagements are not limited in size because agendas are designed to support maximum interaction in the table groups/online breakout rooms, and between the groups and the stage/ facilitator working with the theme team. So in a group of 50, or 500, or 5,000, the experience is similar at each table/online breakout room. Well, almost. In fact, in larger group sizes the feeling while thinking together en masse is increasingly empowering.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What is the goal of a Facilitated Interactive Engagement?

    Facilitated Interactive Engagements are designed to guide organizations most quickly through tough decision-making processes that incorporate all stakeholder perspectives via group dynamics expertise and group communication technologies.

    What kinds of meetings can benefit from a Facilitated Interactive Engagement?

    Meetings of key stakeholders for thinking together, for understanding each other, for innovating and, with good (and coached) leadership, making important decisions. The meeting formats are flexible — from all in the same room, to all online, or a blend of both. And at any size, up into the thousands.

    How are engagements interactive, and what is the benefit?

    With a computer tablet in each small group (on the table or in each online breakout group), connected via software built for large group communication, feeding an effective theming method, and all managed by the most experienced process designers … participants and leaders alike can know what the whole group is thinking in 5-10 minute time frames. This enables a “whole group dialogue” like no other.

    How are engagements facilitated?

    Deeply experienced specialists pay careful attention to the purpose and group dynamics of an engagement and then manage large groups toward the desired outcomes. Add in knowledge of special technology for whole group communications and you have a powerhouse capability in our collaborative services.
