Sharing and building Solution Focused practice in organisations
I’m astonished by the parallels between Solution-Focused practice for organizations and our work with Improvement Kata & Coaching Kata and hope to learn more by posting here.
Much of “Lean” consulting in business focuses on eliminating problems and “wastes,” whereas we’re guiding teams to focus on striving iteratively in small steps toward a new, desired ‘target condition.’ Funny, we even use something like the Miracle Question to help set challenges in a 1-3 year out time frame, though until recently we had not heard of the Miracle Question.
There are differences of course. For example, we don’t use the word “solution” for the desired state because we found people then just trying to implement rather than iterate. We’re using the word “solution” to describe things done to overcome obstacles along the way.
