Planning the National Monograph Strategy Report

To what extent does the physical environment in which we undertake a task (hold a meeting, run a workshop, write a paper), affect the outcome of that activity?

Does working in a small room, with glass walls – that you can write on – make for a better planning workshop?!

I ask these questions as the project met just before Christmas with our project co-design leads: SCONUL and RLUK, who kindly gave up some of their time to help us think about, and plan, the project’s report.

The workshop had two aims:

  1. Begin shaping a shared vision for the National Monograph Strategy, and;
  2. Collaboratively decide on main sections of the final report and sketch out content/headings in a little more detail.

The meeting ended up being incredibly productive; in around half a day we’d managed to sketch out a vision for the report and the structure and outline of content.

The planning workshop meant the project effectively got a lift up a couple of rungs on the report writing ladder – we sat down to do the writing with a clear structure and vision in place.

So, very shortly – maybe even by the end of this month – the draft NMS report will be published.

Then we want to hear from you and get your thoughts.
