I can strongly recommend you involve someone knowledgable about the Future
Search or Search Conference formats. These processes allow the
participants to determine what actions they're willing to take--they
design their own future then go for it. There are several knowledgable
people on this list who can connect you with skilled facilitators. I can
also recommend GroupSystems software which I know to be available within
the DoD. There are several locations set up for large group meetings to
exploit the benefits of the software. I can connect you with moe
information if you want it.

It sounds like an exciting endeavor. I wish you luck and productive chaos
