As many organisations globally are faced with new ways of working, the Janellis team-based critical thinking framework is used with digital technology within a War Room setting.
The digitally enabled war room is designed to bring teams together when faced with uncertainty to identify risk and pivot towards opportunities and develop dynamic strategies for a range of potential scenarios.
Using the simple and intuitive 7-Step critical thinking framework, the war room enables team-based critical thinking by leveraging the ‘brains trust’ within an organisation to provide coverage of a problem or opportunity.
Prior to conducting a war room, Janellis facilitators seek to understand the key stakeholders involved and impacted to understand the ‘current situation’. This is conducted through interviews with the project sponsor using the Janellis stakeholder engagement methods to understand the experiences and expectations of key stakeholders.
Regulated in a virtual setting enabled by digital technology, the war room generates team collaboration, communication and information flow on strategic problems and opportunities.
By using the 7-step process, this team-based activity enables better decision making, problem solving, planning and strategy development. This robust process facilitates an in-depth analysis of the problem drawing upon the knowledge within an organisation.
