Purpose of Workplace and Social Netwalking Mapping:
Walking meetings are a business tool. A lot of work can be done while walking. The walk should have a start time and meeting location, an agenda with purpose and outcome of meeting, (facilitator, tour guide and sweeper – groups over 12), time and end location. Each of these elements is common to meetings with two additional roles of tour guide and sweeper. These roles play a very important part because they help set the tone of the meeting, bring inclusivity, mindful of time, accessibility, safety and comfort.
