I have recently added a post to my blook on Randomised Coffee Trials. It is an updated version of one that I have on my website. I plan to refine and keep the blook version updated.

What is a Randomised Coffee Trial?

A Randomised Coffee Trial or RCT for short is a rather fancy name for an incredibly simple but powerful idea.

RCTs are used to connect people in an organization at random and give them time to meet to have a coffee and talk about whatever they wish.

They are a simple, low-cost way of enabling people to talk with others who they might not otherwise meet. To learn from each other, build relationships, break down organizational silos and build community.

Hundreds of organizations across public, private and voluntary sectors have introduced RCTs in the last few years, including recently the British NHS.

Give them a whirl - I think you will be delighted with the results.
