PATH is a creative planning tool that uses both process and graphic facilitation to create a shared vision of a positive future for individuals, families, teams and whole organisations. PATH draws on people’s ability to visualise different futures and to plan backwards from a future vision or dream and tell stories about how that vision can come into being.
The PATH session will be led by two trained facilitators – a process facilitator who guides people through the stages and ensures that the person is at the centre throughout, and a graphic facilitator who creates a large graphic record of each of the steps in the PATH.
The key outcomes of a PATH are as follows:
- A shared vision within the group of a positive future for the pathfinder
- A commitment to invest in moving towards this future
- A sense of how to do this
This tool, like MAP, uses both process and graphic facilitation to help a group develop a shared vision and plan what they will need to do together to move towards that vision.
