Solution Focused Strategy Canvassing: An Approach To Enabling Collective Effort In Making Strategy Happen

This paper explores the application of Solutions Focus (SF) to strategy facilitation. In particular, through the example of a case study, the paper describes the use of SF 'strategy canvassing' as a way to support managers to develop and implement strategy in practical and pragmatic ways so people at all levels in the organisation are aligned in collective effort: pulling on the same rope, at the same time, and in the same direction.
