"From Best Hopes to Platform!"
Sep 9, 2020
A Global Chapter Meeting with Jenny Clarke
Introduced by Stanus Cloete
In this SFiO Global Chapter Meeting, Jenny Clarke talks about From Best Hopes to Platform. As the title suggests, she addresses the jargon that we, as SF practitioners use. Different practitioners may use different questions to formulate the Platform. The thought-provoking question is, “What do we want to accomplish with the questions we ask?”
To illustrate this, in her talk, Jenny focuses on the start of a conversation as a distinct chunk. She asks of the first question we might use: • What is the purpose of the question? • What does it do?
She also illustrates her reason for choosing Platform Building rather than the Best Hopes question in working with groups. As an exercise, she explains that a client sent her an invitation to “do some SF training for two days” for a small team. To the participants of the chapter meeting, she poses the question. “What would you do?” • About the CEO’s invitation? • Before the event? • When starting?
This video provides you with a highly stimulating talk on how to start an SF conversation in an organisation.
