FAQs

1. Where can I get formal training in Compression Planning®?

For more information on Compression Planning® or the Compression Planning® Institute, click here to visit the McNellis Company website.

2. We are a small college and do not have the staff resources described in Modules 2 and 3. Can we still run a Compression Planning® session with our ISD and industry partners?

Yes.  The model described here is certainly adjustable to the size and needs of your organization, whether a small college, small ISD or individual school working with the local community college.  A trained facilitator (to design and run the session) is key.  Other staff, even the observers, can step in as pinners or printers with a brief overview of the role.

3. Where do we get those boards, cards, templates?

You can order materials such as storyboards, easels, carrying cases and session accessories from CompressionPlanningProducts.com.  You can also use different sized index cards from any office supply store.  A variety of templates and resources can also be found at McNellisCo.com.

4. Will this Toolkit be presented at our CCRSM Regional Meetings?

Yes, as early as Spring 2020, presentations will be offered at several of the Texas Regional Convenings.  See TexasCCRSM.org/Community

5. I would like to observe a P-TECH Compression Planning® session. Is it possible to arrange it?

Yes, please contact our team at DCCCDConveningCenter@dcccd.edu

6. Is your team available to demonstrate a session on our campus?

We are happy to visit with you, answer questions and demonstrate how we use Compression Planning® at DCCCD, but as a first step, we recommend that one or more members of your team attend the Compression Planning® training that the McNellis Institute offers, McNellisCo.com

7. Is it possible to host a virtual CP session and get the same results?

As it turns out, yes. In response to Covid-19, we were challenged to create a virtual Compression Planning solution. We used multiple virtual convening platforms to create an engaging environment with complete real-time video, audio, media sharing, and feedback capture. There are some trade-offs. The virtual environment does not easily show body language, for example, which accounts for more than 50% of how we communicate. Recognition and comprehension of contextual nuance and intent can be inhibited, and likely will be. However, the virtual environment provides tools like Chat and Record, which can mitigate the losses of the live environment. Like any Compression Planning session, the environment will have an impact. Planning and practice, and good tech, can produce a quality virtual Compression Planning session. In our experience, becoming proficient in the traditional live format is beneficial, and necessary before attempting virtual sessions.
