With a challenging deadline, disparate geography and requirements to meet the needs of the Government, this project required an alternate approach in order to deliver success. So what was the approach?
One day of facilitation to agree and commit in the room to an action plan that would activate collaboration across a region. Who was there:
As a result of this day, 120 participants (councils, businesses, universities) agreed to collaboration (and put this in writing), others agreed to financial contributions and all articulated their commitment to advancing the region’s technology and innovation capability using existing and latent resources. Administration to establish a new co-operative entity also occurred, party agreement was finalised and our Founder delivered a collaborative action plan that was accepted by all parties and the state of Queensland.
Secured funding, matched by the State of Queensland. Contacts from this project remain in touch with our Founder today, some of whom will remain professional contacts, a few will be friends of Millennial Group for a long time to come.
