3 steps for the tailor-made workshop “The Colourful Moderation Mix”
Preparation: During the initial contracting you tell me your concerns, your challenges and your desires. From that we peel the objectives for the creativity workshop and bring them into focus. Many of the questions that I put to you, are in order to achieve a comprehensive picture of your circumstances and needs.
Ideally, a meeting with a so-called “steering group” will take place. These are people that can represent the overall system well, coming from the most varied fields. They can represent the concerns of the audience.
On this basis I am designing a tailor-made programme for you with creative methods, issues and information services. Be surprised by a methodical firework!
Execution: Leave the process control and the stimulation of the group dynamics during the large group event to me. That way you will be free, to contribute fully and creatively and enjoy the whole event.
Post-proceedings: Approximately 1 week after the event all participants will receive a thank you note from you, and a link to pictures of the event or a flip chart protocol. If so desired, the results can be summarised in a report. 1 to 2 weeks after the event, a debriefing with feedback – ideally with the steering group present- will take place.

Unusual solutions require unusual methods. Dealing with technical problems such as energy efficiency for a city or region means the almost exclusive involvement of technicians. If left to their own devices, this may well lead to technically excellent partial solutions but does not necessarily ensure that the complete potential of the group is fully used even beyond the purely technical aspects.
The decision to get Birgit Baumann to support the development process “paid off” in the true sense of the word. During the three workshops carried out, the group of participants surpassed themselves in terms of creativity which led to some totally extraordinary solutions. This, however, was not all. Birgit Baumann succeeded in directing the discussions, which, while being extremely fruitful, were nevertheless also quite controversial, into a collective and cohesive result.
The conclusion for the record: if the aim is to achieve exceptional solutions one has to use the entire creative potential – and Birgit Baumann manages this excellently.
In the name of the COMET programme management I would like to thank Birgit Baumann for her extremely professional support and moderation of our workshop!
Her understanding of complex interactions is just as impressive as her tireless personal engagement.
The new method of brain storming was very positively received by the workshop participants (21 executives from competence centres) and created the desired dynamic and creativity.
Conclusion: the teamwork with Birgit Baumann was exceedingly professional and can be recommended without any reservations!
