Organising a workshop: the basics

What you need to know

What is the point of a workshop?

There are many benefits of a workshop:

informing people and making knowledge accessiblelearning new skillsdeveloping creativityinnovatingresolving specific problems.

Within a company, a workshop can be organised in order to more easily find a solution to a recurring problem or to explore a new way of working. For example, in order to redefine a company’s web strategy, a workshop can bring together all the people in the company who are involved in this area (IT technicians, analysts, community managers, communications supervisors, etc.). It therefore has a double function: reinforcing a feeling of belonging to the team and motivating employees.

Creating a ‘work bubble’

Group dynamic is one of the essential elements of a good workshop, as the team’s cohesion and the project’s success depend on it. As the management specialists Anca Metiu and Nancy P. Rothbard point out in a study published in 2012 entitled Task Bubbles, Artefacts, Shared Emotion, and Mutual Focus of Attention: A Comparative Study of the Microprocesses of Group Engagement, a workshop will be more effective and productive if a work bubble is created. The two authors illustrate that problem resolution tends to happen after interactions within small, temporary groups in which there is a strong group engagement.
