Liberating Structures


 Our custom tools and templates for better Design Sprints.

A Growing Library

At Voltage Control we are Liberating Structures enthusiasts. Why? If you have to ask, we have a series of Murals for you. In all seriousness, there are many frameworks that allow facilitators to deliver participatory decision-making. We feel strongly that Liberating Structures has an approach to address almost any challenge you may have to overcome. We created Murals for the activities we use most often and hope you enjoy using them as much as we do.

Start with the 'What'

The best advice we can offer up is to begin with the goal/the mission/the problem you are looking to solve. Liberating Structures activities tend to follow a pattern of individual work, small group collaboration, and larger group sharing. Clustering and Voting are staples, but keep in mind that each of the Murals below targets a specific need–choose carefully and iterate at speed.
