KAST stakeholders recently participated in a great opportunity to utilize the Wavefront tools to connect and brainstorm issues pertaining to the direction of local tech and economic development.
Launching the two-hour session was a brief discussion: ‘Technology and Your Local Economy’; followed by a brainstorming session to compile a variety of problem statements. The problem statements identify the challenges facing technology as an economic driver, and were narrowed down by a group vote.
To help address the issues decided upon, Wavefront facilitates a ‘How Might We….’ out of the most popular statements, generating helpful goal-oriented problem statements. These statements are then passed on to the Board to aid in strategy planning.
Once sessions have been completed throughout the province, the key questions will be summarized and delivered from Wavefront. The intention driving the sessions is to identify the issues by region, helping to identify the specific challenges, so that key stakeholders are better prepared to work together to solve them.
