Organisational sculpting is a powerful and versatile tool that can reveal dynamics an organisation has tacitly agreed not to talk about.

It can be used for

  • illustrating problems experienced by a particular type of organisation
  • illustrating relationships between central and local organisations in governments and enterprises
  • developing a strategy by helping an organisation assess its relationship with external organisations
  • team building by assessing the dynamics of the team and its relationships with other teams
  • helping an individual manager identify the dynamics of a problem set of relationships
  • providing feedback to a system.

A sculpt can generate large amounts of useful data for laying a sound basis for a long term program of work on key organisational issues. The only restrictions are our imagination, skills, and abilities … and there is no such thing as a free lunch! Or is there?

This workshop prepares participants for critical feedback received in a sculpt for gaining response-ability. Such preparedness to be surprised can either be used to activate a pre-set sculpt or parts party named “Ship of Fools“, or, if run in a context where participants are stakeholders to the same system and/or project, lead to an actual organisational sculpt for that particular context.
