Crowdsourcing a Strategic Plan (E/SI)

May 4, 2020 | 11:15 - 12:15

Location: 210 D
Track: Governing Excellence

In winter 2018-19, George Brown College needed to find a compelling way to engage its employees in the development of the college’s new strategic plan. Faced with multiple employee groups with varying schedules across disparate campus locations, the college needed an accessible platform that could offer flexibility and give employees a voice. Participants will learn about the launch of iGBC.ca, George Brown College’s innovation and idea gathering platform, which encouraged employees to share their opinions on the future of the college in a collaborative and transparent way to influence the direction for 2022, and beyond. In this new online crowdsourced community, employees could comment, vote and add their own ideas on subjects related to the future of the college, the future of work and the future of learning.

Within nine months, more than 6,000 individuals offered more than 20,000 contributions to the college’s strategic development process through workshops, think tanks, roundtables, college council meetings, surveys and on iGBC.ca.
