While it still needs to be tweaked, after about an hour of planning, here is where we landed. Always a good idea - we would start off with a Stakeholder mapping activity. Then moving onto some "looking" we would do a "what's on your radar" activity before we round the morning out with "experience diagramming" and a "rose, bud, thorn" activity. The afternoon will kick-off with some "statement starters," move to a "creative matrix" activity where we will "visualize the vote" and then either do a "concept poster" or "storyboarding" activity. Depending on time we will either do a "heuristic review" or "critique."
Notice that the sheet of paper (below) is broken down into "swim lanes" where each of the LUMA system areas are represented: Looking, Making & Understanding. Some of the methods we will use will require some prep work on my part like developing persona profiles and the rows/columns on the creative matrix. Through this workshop we will examine the "existing" state of the Upper School girls' experience and then the "preferred" state that bears in mind our new 80 minute schedule.

workshop on Design Thinking using the LUMA system
I also got amazing advice from Mike, a Pittsburger in town for the workshop now working at Facebook. It was fascinating to talk to Mike about Facebook's growth, to Seth about his consulting work and Shannon about Environmental Charter School. I feel lucky to have collaborated with them and the amazing Bill Lucas.
