Benefits for the organization

Complex problems are permanently solved in a short period of time. The agreed-upon steps are implemented. Misunderstandings can be solved quickly and without conflict. The participants get to know each other on a deeper level, can better assess each other, and trust each other more. Thanks to the structured moderation that is used, even complex topics can be solved in a short period of time.

Benefits for the participants

Numerous individual meetings, which are needed to reach consensus, are eliminated, as all contact persons have come together. Ergo, all participants save time. Every participant can present his or her concern and discuss it with all those present. All participants get a clear picture of strategies, goals, and steps.
