Team Retreat


The Challenge

How might we design and facilitate a 4-day offsite for the UN SDG campaign team to create alignment and engagement on yearly goals through the development of a strategic decision making framework to improve efficiency?  

Mischief Approach

We designed a bespoke decision-making framework, to support the team strategy; derived from the ‘theory of change’ approach. This included a carefully curated process that fits the teams current needs and envisioned ways of working. The framework was brought to life during the 4-day off site through moderated discussions, brainstorm techniques and designs sprint methodologies.


  • Reignited team spirit including a clear framework to establish great work together

  • Ongoing partnership with Mischief to keep the process on track throughout 2022

  • Strategic decision making framework implemented 

“We were extremely impressed by Mischief’s ideation and brainstorm tools and approaches; by the broad array of tools customized for our needs, by the ongoing fast-paced flexibility for updating the agenda based on the emerging needs and on the evolution of the discussion. But the most remarkable added value was Mischief’s magical touch in ensuring -by the end of the sessions- to bring all the pieces together and build and inspired consensus on the critical questions we had to find answers to. We could not have done it without them."
