Here is what you can expect to take place during the HelixPLANฎ class:
Day 1: 8:30am to 5:30pm
Understanding the concepts, architecture, and principles related to HelixPLAN®. Understanding how the first eight or so of the 15 HelixPLAN® techniques work by being active participants and observers as they are demonstrated.
Day 2: 8:30am to 5:30pm
Will primarily be a day of learning by experiencing, doing and observing.
You will have an opportunity to practice and to watch how others do it. Techniques not introduced the first day will be demonstrated.
Day 2 will also include learning about HelixPLAN® modules and scenarios -- frequently used combinations of HelixPLAN® techniques.
Day 3: 8:30am to 4:30pm
Will focus on session design. Working in a small team with two or three other participants you will have an opportunity to design:
A Critical Success Factors planning session scenario. This will be a take-away from the class that you will have on the shelf ready for use when the need arises.
A complete planning session given only the session objective and a list of topics for the session. These session objectives and topics will be germane to your work; so the session you design will be another take-away.
We will also do a guided tour of the report writing techniques associated with facilitated HelixPLAN® sessions.
