The Interweaving practice offers rich and manifold kinds of takeaways. The following four groups summaries key deliverables.
The focus on integration, alignment, engagement, co-creation, and bridge building makes an Interweaver uniquely suited to complement and support executives and managers. An Interweaver can offload and supplement managers by taking on integration, facilitation, mediation and change management tasks. Facilitation and Mediation roles are natural to Interweavers since Interweaving focus on cross-cutting, cross organisational and change management concerns.
Integration, Facilitation, Mediation & Change Management
Interweaving provides many actives means, features and tools to a project or organisation. These add values by bringing the organisation together in different ways. Actively working with the Interweave and interconnections brings cohesion and stability. A backbone acts as a guardrail, advice, and attractor for good decisions and actions. A well designed backbone enables and strengthen strategic, business and operational logics.
Interweave & Backbones
Walking through a solution, design, or innovation, checking how it fits, acts, and evolve, is an important and valuable activity. Interweave assessments, verifications, and validations are activities that can be performed at any stage in a transformation, change, or design journey. At the end of a project an Interweave validation can answer the questions “are we building the right system?” and “are we building the system right?” as part of business validation.
Assessment & Validation
One of the most important tasks for interweavers is to create and manage knowledge for the benefits of people in work they do. Knowledge and story telling, in all its forms, allows us to uncover insights and learn so that we can see the world differently, work together, solve problems in new and innovative ways, and take advantage of opportunities.
