Sharing and building Solution Focused practice in organisations

After the meeting of the Karlstad Group in Vienna in March, I took the small step I volunteered by offering a very first attempt at a draft SF manifesto. Comments welcome.

Hi Jenny,

that's a great starting point to let emerge a "SF Manifesto"!

To use (and to do more of) that how the "Agile Manfisto" emerged in 2001 (see I propose to work on it in an interactive workshop setting! One of the ,most important messages of "agility" is, that you have to sustain communiation as much as possible - and in a "real face to face way" and not via virtual channels....

How would it be to install such a setting somewhere? On a nice place which is near to most of all co-creators? ((Seaford for example would be a verry nice place... but I am shure, that there are many other nice places... also in Switzerland, of course... ))

What do you think about this?
Thank you - see below.
Dear jenny,
What a nice first draft!. Here I give you some ideas, maybe to improve your draft:
1.Assumes:Behind every problem is a wish.
2. Value: (useful/positive) differences
3.Practice: Focussed on what works already.
I'm curiuos for other remarks.
Bert Garssen.
Thank you Hans-Peter and Bert

I have waited a couple of weeks before replying - partly because I am a bit nervous of this whole enterprise! No-one else has commented and so I am going to leave this for the time being - having included Bert's ideas into the fdraft. Perhaps the Manifesto idea might get some air time in Vilnius.

Best wishes,






Jumpstart into Solution Focus

You want to learn more about "Solution Focus"?

You prefer a "step by step" introduction instead to start with reading some
voluminous books?

You would appreciate to have a complete "helicopter view" on SF after the first step…
