Think-Tank Overview

The Think-Tank is an exciting step in the Vision and Values project! The Think-Tank process helps to define a broad vision, values, goals and directions. It is conducted as a highly participatory 4-hour workshop that produces a preferred future scenario validated by its participants. The scenario-based Think-Tank is a tool to gain better understanding of community priorities and goals that contribute to the creation of effective strategies and actions for program and resource allocation. A range of plausible future scenarios are developed that act as a testing ground to assess resilience and consequences.

For Falmouth, this process will try to answer important questions such as:

  • What should Falmouth become?
  • What makes Falmouth unique and special and how can the Town use these characteristics to prepare for the future?
  • How will community stakeholder preferences fit into this vision?

The Think-Tank methodology will allow community stakeholders to tackle these questions in an engaging and thought-provoking manner. This will then lead to the clarification of the vision and values that will guide the Town’s decision-making into the future and as it prepares for the comprehensive planning process in 2022.
