Now that you have planned your workshop, it is time to decide what to do during it. To get the most out of your and your colleagues' valuable time, it is important that you set aside time to prepare the workshop.

Follow the guide below to prepare for an effective and inclusive experience.

1. Set the frames

Before you can start preparing in detail what you are going to do at the workshop, it is important to clarify the purpose of the workshop and what you expect for the results of it.

An easy way to do this is to follow the so-called IDOARRT method. IDOARRT stands for Intention, Desired Outcome, Agenda, Rules, Roles and Responsibilities and Time, ie purpose, desired result, agenda, rules, roles and responsibilities as well as time. Try it and then return to the wizard to take the next step.

2. Design the detail

Once you have the framework for your workshop, you can start designing the details. Take your IDOARRT agenda from the previous step and explore the methods below to find one that fits your context.

Feel free to adapt the methods so that they work for you! If someone needs to be a little longer or shorter, or if you want to change the order of something, just do it.
