Session timing


0900 Poster gallery walk of the results of all the working groups of the previous day and work of the graphic facilitators
0945 Dotmocracy for each participant to select three most priority topics ILRI needs to invest in
1005 Reflection on result of vote to prioritize 6 most priority topics ILRI needs to invest in

Process and facilitation


Jo to facilitate and TIGHT timekeeping
Poster gallery walk (45min) with introduction on how to by Jo
Each poster from the previous day has a blank column on its side where participants can stick post-its with their comments and identify links with other issues being tackled by other posters.
The giant graphic facilitation syntheses are accompanied by a flip chart on which participants can stick post-its with their comments

Each participant is given 3 stickers at 0930 with instruction to keep them for later.

Dotmocracy (20 mins)
Use dotmocracy (http://www.kstoolkit.org/Dotmocracy) to illustrate the staff’s selection of key priorities ILRI needs to invest in.
Participants have three stickers to select on which topics they feel ILRI should be investing in (stickers to be stuck in the blank column on each poster)
No weighting of stickers: too complicated with such a large audience. The large number of participants should discriminate across topics anyway.

Question for dotmocracy: 'What do you think are the three most priority topics on which ILRI must invest in? You have three stickers representing three dollars; where would you invest them?'

When we see the result of the dotmocracy, Jo facilitates a reflection process on which topics have been selected: ask viewpoint on the result of dotmocracy from selected participants:
1) two representatives of support services
2) two representatives of science
3) two representatives from staff in regions
4) two representatives of youth (under 40)
(20 mins)
