Laurie Webster from QED Insight will give us a hands-on introduction to SenseMaker, a methodology that gives you a better understanding of complex problems. People share stories and answer questions that code the meaning of those stories.

* Learn by doing - go through an example
* Cover the heuristics of design
* See the basics of analyzing story data
* Take action using Safe-to-fail experiments

We do all of this without any software so you can go and use this in your own situation. Please bring a tablet or laptop as we will access a completed project. We will start at 6:30.
