Concrete activities

Something for something

Silobuster_logo.png

What?

Something for something (Trade-off), is an activity that embraces the principle that you can't always have everything. Sometimes you have to enter into a trade with other groups to come to an agreement on what can be done and for whom.

Why?

When we need to come to an agreement, even if it comes at the cost of something.

How?

What is proposed here is a negotiation process. Keep in mind that when negotiating, both the 'deal' and the relationship must be taken care of.

 

Each party must keep an eye on whether one affects the relationship negatively by demanding too much from the other.

Invite stakeholders and individuals with a mandate into a room and make it clear where your limitations are and then invite a discussion about which decisions should come first.

Remember to discuss the consequences for others of the negotiation result.

Who?

It can potentially be a sensitive topic for some groups to negotiate, and may require facilitation by someone who is impartial to the matter.

Compromises

What?

An activity where two groups undertake to support each other's goals through mutual negotiation. Important things are 'traded' for each group, but under a common intention to want something more with each other.

Why?

When we need to close a deal.

 

To create a common understanding of the goal and coordinate the way to get there together.

How?

First agree in your own group to enter the negotiations. Discuss what you are willing to 'give up' to get the other group to support your goals. Arrange a meeting with the other group to discuss what 'deals' you can make. Agree to evaluate the solution after a while.

 

By putting the partners together, there is an opportunity for e.g. to have a common plan and strategy and to change any processes.

 

When each party is allowed to present its side, knowledge is shared about the goal and stakeholders, as well as a common understanding of the goal and success criteria.

Who?

The activity can be done by anyone in a group (at all organizational levels), but depending on what is at stake, it is recommended to involve local leaders.

 

In addition, it is important to invite common stakeholders into the conversation.
