Over a 7-month period, French sporting goods specialist Decathlon gave its 92,000 collaborators, as well as customers and partners, the opportunity to co-write its vision for 2030. During the Covid crisis period, the vision initially set out for 2030 became Vision 2021, confirming the agility of the French favorite company.
ENGIE launched an online debate process open to all its employees to co-construct the group’s vision and strategy. This new approach enabled ENGIE to involve its 150,000 employees, to embody the “Purpose Company” of tomorrow.
Discover the steps taken by Societe Generale in Africa to move from a pan-African community of managers and an experimental innovation system to collective intelligence on the scale of an entire continent.
“If you believe in collective intelligence, you need to listen to the voices of all your stakeholders. I’m convinced that if a company wants to remain relevant to its customers, it needs to integrate them into its Vision. Once we had decided to open up our approach to everyone (#OpenToAll), we realised that physical workshops weren’t enough. We also needed to add a digital dimension and looked for the partner with the skills to do this. This was a big first for us.”

The quality of a debate and the results produced rely on an iterative approach with several key steps. Over periods of 6-8 weeks, the different modules on the Assembl platform enable you to problematize topics, generate and dive deeper into ideas, vote for and evaluate solutions. Offer your participants a richer and more varied co-construction experience.
Relevant, high-quality content
Generating relevant, actionable solutions requires maximum interaction and debate between participants. To achieve this, we recommend using online conversation tools like discussion forums. Our community managers will help enrich and enliven these conversations.
The success of your co-construction process relies on the capacity to massively mobilise participants. To complement our digital platform, adopt a hybrid approach integrating physical and/or remote workshops to bring together groups of any size. Objective? Explore specific themes, drawing on innovative co-construction formats e.g. design fiction and flash debates.
