    TEAM What went well Pods went well – structure helped, color coded post it notes, intent of having a dialogue.  Last session use stickers to identify connections. Don’t ask pod members to create categories/themes rather ask them to make a connection to something I was thinking about. Find 4 things that connect. Both speakers made great connections to opening session and CM theme Things to consider changing Read or say it to the group. Discuss first then post. Feedback at the end of day 2 What went well Tim made explicit connections to Timo’s work. Maybe try to set this...

    Team Feedback for February 2019

    Day 1 What went well? Davide and Shelley material was well integrated and built on each other. Set up of the day’s session:  precise and concrete.  Bringing home the takeaways from before and this session.  Made the conversation by the community more precise. Didn’t feel small, felt intimate Sita’s graphics were powerful. People quoted from the brief. Nice that the speakers came up with provocations at the end of their presentations. Could we leave enough time to discuss them? What to change for tomorrow? Distance of the tables made the room feel a bit empty.  Get rid of one table....

    2018 Feedback from Summit

    From Team What went well Reordering the agenda and putting small groups first then keynotes worked well. Energy levels were high all day. Participants were mixing well together Timing worked well, padding – allowing for transition times Food was delicious Animation allowed people to yield in to theme – coherent and synthesizing – providing good background for new people Flipchart with topic and room and signage on the rooms   What to consider for next year Reconfigure the opening to set a conceptual frame for the theme to anchor people into the conversation for the day Small groups could be...

    April 2018 Feedback

    From Team Day 1 What went well Both speakers were engaging They were committed to the group – in conversation with us rather than a show Members were engaged in the break out – practical group less theoretical (how do you identify and break patterns) More questions for the discussion groups Lots of post it notes Learning round for NASA was very productive.  Daniel thought it was poor – too many people and we didn’t really help them much. For Parexel, Michele reminded them about the content of the morning and suggest we might bring it into the conversation Engagement...
