The Power (and Peril) of Covergence

November 15, 2007

The sandpit is progressing rapidly into the most difficult phase – convergent thinking, leading to the development of well-formed project ideas. This stage of the process is always highly charged – participants are dealing with passionate ideas and ideals, while the sandpit process forces individuals and teams to pick and choose and to prioritise.

Building multidisciplinary project teams, in real time, while listening to and taking on Board feedback from Mentors and Funders is challenging. It’s good to see our participants responding well to this challenge, to to see real excitement within the emerging project teams.  Things are beginning to look very positive – and we’re optimistic of a good outcome by Friday afternoon.
