Walsall Local Strategic Partnership
We worked with a metropolitan borough council to develop a vision of 2021 for its communities. We created an AI conversation master guide that helped people to carry out detailed AI conversations with a wide range of organisations and interests in the borough. The conversation material was shared at a major conference of the local strategic partnership (LSP) for the borough and more widely via the LSP’s website.

West Midlands Fire Service
The West Midlands Fire Service engaged us to work with its senior managers using several Appreciative Inquiry-based 4-D events to create material for the service’s vision project. At the same time Oi was asked to equip those officers with sufficient knowledge and confidence of AI to take a more leading role in later visioning activities, including developing and running a vision summit.
