The Chatham House Party report

Some blurry people celebrating Canada.
I was reminded this morning of Blueprint 2020 and the Chatham House party that we organized back in 2013. Reviewing the blog posts from back in the day, I notice that it looks like I never wrote the follow up bit, so here it is, five years later…

20 plus folks got together for dinner and facilitated idea generation and dialogue. Several very talented people volunteered to help make the experience  extremely awesome.

We did Lego serious play and World Cafe. We drew on tabletops and constructed 3d models of abstract social concepts. We took visual notes and created a report.

Our three top items were:

  1. Decision making pushed down to the lowest possible level
  2. TBS policy that mandates openness and knowledge sharing
  3. Creation of a pervasive Work Market

Here is the final report that we submitted to the Secretariat. CHP2020_Aug_28_2013_Final_Report

What you think, do any of these ideas still resonate?  Have we made progress?
