Many observers emphasize the importance of involving a large part of the organization in the strategic planning process. Indeed, for some strategic initiatives, a large number of people must contribute, either because many different points of view are needed to find a solution, or because the entire organization must participate in implementation.

Although many executives readily admit the theoretical validity of involving more employees in strategic thinking, they also wonder whether this apparently noble principle is actually doable. How to organize this approach efficiently while delving deep into the thinking of several dozen or several hundred participants? Wouldn’t it be more realistic to organize a task force of a few experts on the subject?

The analyzed publications show that the intelligence of a large number of people can be effectively mobilized, with often remarkable concrete results:

– Proven methodologies exist to capitalize on the combined intelligence and points of view of over one hundred participants.

– These methodologies are based on a combination of specific techniques designed to stimulate participants creativity and desire to cooperate.

– They provide a source of valuable inspiration in organizing participative management seminars.
