On November 5th, the Modis team welcomed 19 PMI Belgium Chapter members for the Satellite event entitled “Better together? On how to make or break multi-stakeholder collaborations”. The event was held at their Temse office. Modis is a consultancy firm in the field of life sciences, engineering and IT.
The concept of this evening was an interactive workshop, so members of PMI Belgium Chapter were divided into three groups of around six people and had to take the lead. Each group started brainstorming what they thought could make or break a multi-stakeholder collaboration. Then common themes were identified using the Affinity Grouping method and all ideas were organized into key challenges. Then each group took one theme and had to think about possible solutions using an Impact Effort Matrix and had to discuss their solutions in front of all attendees.
Reporting back on the individual groups’ outcomes concluded the formal part of the event, after which all participants enjoyed further discussions on this topic (and beyond) and networking. Overall, there was great participation throughout, with many opportunities for interaction and sharing of experiences, which were much appreciated by both participants and the organizing team.
We sincerely thank MODIS for their warm welcome, kind hospitality and a very interesting and dynamic workshop!
