Picture a traditional large table in a conference or boardroom in your organization where the leaders meet for important meetings. With that table in mind, now picture a meeting where the leaders will be sharing a critical new initiative for your organization. Other than the executive level leaders, who else would be invited to that meeting? Who gets to have a seat at the table for such a meeting? How are other stakeholders who are not in the typical leadership group included in the roll-out of the plan, or sought out to give input prior to the internal roll-out of the initiative?
● For this formative assessment you can create a graphic representation of those sitting at the leadership table and why they are invited to the table, along with a list of who would not be invited to the table that could share valuable insights to support the process.
● If you would prefer to write instead of illustrate, you can list the participants with a brief evaluation of why you feel they are or are not invited to the table.
