If your diagnostic shows a significant result in the area between Lack of Perspective and the Lack of Vision,
you may be part of Blindspot Ltd. Here’s how you can navigate your way out.

Lack of Vision:

Events may fail due to a Lack of Vision.

Symptoms are amongst others a lack of long-term perspective and the inability to see the bigger picture, leading to confusion about a shared vision and limited direction. Additionally, assumptions that events are easy, resistance to change, and a lack of structured processes contribute to the problem.

Possible Solutions:

  • Horizons of Change (Brown Paper Landscape)
  • Evaluate Vision, Prototypes, and Personnel
  • Stakeholder Analysis
  • Utilize Horizons of Change frameworks.

In the realm of planning and change management, several crucial strategies stand out. Begin by employing the “Horizons of Change” approach, which involves creating a “Brown Paper Landscape” to visualize the path forward comprehensively. Evaluate the key elements of your project, encompassing the vision, prototypes, and personnel involved, to ensure that your plans align with your objectives. Conduct a thorough Stakeholder Analysis to identify and engage with all relevant parties, ensuring their concerns and needs are addressed. Additionally, utilize “Horizons of Change” frameworks to better understand the various phases of transformation. These frameworks provide valuable insights for navigating change successfully, from initial ideas and planning to execution and adaptation.

Lack of Perspective:

Events may fail due to a Lack of Perspective. 

For instance when event owners overestimate their understanding of stakeholders’ preferences or disregard them altogether. Last-minute design changes without justification, succumbing to the “delusion of the day syndrome,” overcommitment, and an overestimation of the event’s value, based on initial ideas or prototypes, further contribute to the problem.

Possible Solutions:

  1. Listen to expert planners and adapt.
  2. Stakeholder Alignment Canvas.
  3. Use Empathy Mapping for diverse collaboration.
  4. Align various organizational levels.
  5. Consult the design before altering plans.
  6. Utilize Horizons of Change frameworks.
  7. Conduct Stakeholder Analysis.

When faced with a complex problem, a strategic approach can pave the way for a successful resolution. First and foremost, it’s imperative to listen to expert planners and adapt to their insights; their experience can provide invaluable guidance. Employing tools like the Stakeholder Alignment Canvas and conducting Stakeholder Analysis will help identify key players and their interests, fostering effective collaboration. Additionally, utilizing Empathy Mapping can lead to understanding the stakeholders within the decision-making process. Aligning various organizational levels ensures a unified front in tackling the event and the strategy behind. Before making substantial decisions, consulting the design is crucial for minimizing unexpected consequences. Lastly, leveraging the Horizons of Change frameworks helps create a structured path for implementation. By following these solutions, a clear and efficient way out of the problem can be achieved, with well-informed decisions and collaborative effort leading the way.
