The large group conversation on developing a design thinking mindset was a lively and instructive time for everyone. (see Storify summary of this part of day 2 summit).
Design teams were given time to work on developing their stories for the afternoon session on “storytelling.” Each team will have 5 minutes to construct a story, sharing with the audience their journey. What have been the milestones along the way, what are their learnings, and where are they along the path will be components of their story. The story arc is the template they are using (see below):
The following link to a Storify synopsis of Twitter links during the storytelling time (click here) will give you some sense of what was accomplished. We videotaped the whole day and captured all eleven stories, which will be posted on the website in the coming weeks.
