The workshop agenda describes how the workshop will progress. The workshop participants need a workshop agenda. Your agenda should have a beginning, middle and an end.

The workshop agenda beginning will include the introductions, icebreaker, warm-up and an overview of the workshop. It will include an introduction by the workshop owner as well as a review of the workshop objectives and a review of the workshop scope.

The workshop agenda middle is the whole process: the workshop itself. You will address and go through your objectives to see how workshop participants can provide information to gain understanding of how you will achieve the objective. You will gather information, assist and manage the participants to analyse the information, interprets it, debate and fully understand it then come to some individual conclusions about it. If consensus is reached amongst the participants and you are happy, and the workshop or is happy, that the objective is satisfied them that specific objective is done. Move on to the next objective.

Undoubtedly, immediate consensus is unlikely and will demand your skills to summarise and describe the opposing views, document onto a flip chart if necessary, whilst encouraging the participants to support or challenge these views. You will need to gradually pick away at individual oppositions and highlight, document and park areas of consensus. It takes time.

The workshop agenda end will include a review of the workshop deliverables, a review of the issues and next steps. It is best to spend in the last 10 minutes going round the workshop participants to evaluate the conclusion of the event and to collect any comments.
