    I’m hoping to gain a little feedback on how best to structure Green Belt meetings to maximise their effectiveness.  What have you found works best…case studies, small/large group work, workshop sessions, brainstorming to generate ideas etc?
    In an ideal world it would be useful to identify and plan training opportunities that can be delivered at these meetings as it is a rare opportunity to get the Green Belts together in one room!
    Thanks for your feedback

    Andrew,
    You may want to consider structuring the sessions so that you can identify common problems and give the GBs a chance to share best practice.  Size does matter here but you can get around it if you structure a common plenary with breakout activies/team report outs.
    Hope this helps….

    I would consider using an action learning approach to your meetings or at least part of the meeting.  In brief this means asking each of the participant GBs to bring an issue they are dealing with – it can be a project or part thereof – and to stucture it as an action learning question (ALQ) to be answered.
    In action learning the approach is to learn from one another, rather than be taught by experts.  Groups (often called “sets”) of 4-6 people work together on addressing one anothers’ issues/ALQs.  The aim is to not only ‘solve’ the problem by taking what you agree to be appropriate action but to also learn from this action (and that’s why it’s called “action learning”).  This learning is then shared with both the group/set and more widely with the community of GB practice – the learning and sharing is ongoing, not just a lessons learned review at the end.  This would allow you to maintain thread of learning that extends beyond a single meeting.
    If you want further details on how to do this, I can point you in the right direction.  Simply drop me a note directly to my email at [email protected]
    Regards, John
