What is expected of me as a participant?
The workshop period is spent dedicated to the event, and typically means stepping out of one’s “day job” for that time for core participants. Some may be asked to be “on call” for the RPIW, meaning that their input is necessary for only part of the event. These staff will be asked to block out time to meet with the core team during certain periods only. Participants will be asked to manage other responsibilities in such a way that their full attention can be provided to the team. The purpose of an RPIW is redesign and improve. The environment is meant to be one of safe, open discussion. The facilitator will review “ground rules” at the beginning of the event to ensure that all share a like vision of the professional, supportive environment necessary to allow for positive change.
