In a work­shop, a group works inten­si­ve­ly on a spe­ci­fic topic on a pre-defi­ned peri­od of time. The decisi­ve fac­tor here is the coope­ra­ti­ve and faci­li­ta­ted method of working towards a com­mon goal. Sub­jects can be stra­tegy, pro­ces­ses and pro­ce­du­res, ana­ly­sis of a spe­ci­fic pro­blem or struc­tu­red dis­cus­sion of a spe­ci­fic topic. Suc­cess of a work­shop is based on the moti­va­ti­on of the par­ti­ci­pan­ts. If they reco­gni­ze the added value and the actions are fol­lo­wed up (for exam­p­le in a fol­low-up work­shop), results can be achie­ved. A work­shop is indi­vi­du­al­ly desi­gned (con­tent, dura­ti­on) depen­ding on the situa­ti­on at hand.
