I facilitated my first workshop!
I manage a 1400 head goat dairy with 9 employees. I switched our normal monthly meeting where I do all of the talking to an LDJ. The team decided on issue, created a solution and by the end of the day they completed the actions steps to make it happen. And of course their main issue was something I did not expect. Some folks were a bit reluctant in the beginning of the session but at the very end everyone wanted to jump into the next HMW question. We are definitely going to be running more of these! Thank you @Aj Smart for the fundamentals course and this community for your experience. We’re hooked!

Amazing! 👏🏾
Out of the blue...
Hey FC, So out of the blue I had a call from a former student (I taught in higher ed) and a past colleague (held similar roles in a sister University) about holding a workshop for them. Back in the day I used to hold a 10-day Design Thinking bootcamp for 100 university undergrads in the summers. They are looking for a 1/2 day session, in-person (I prefer remote) and I am trying to do them a favour. I was thinking of still using to run the session and I am fairly comfortable with what I am going to present but I am hung up on price. I don't really need the work but I also don't want to undersell myself. In my past consulting life (circa 2010) I would charge $2500 USD a day or normally by the project so like $9-18K. Thoughts?? D

@D Darren MacDonald Cool! $3-4k excluding expenses?

@D Darren MacDonald Sounds awesome! Congrats! 🙌🏾 How about framing it as a gift as opposed to tripwire? 🙂
The eagle has landed! 🦅✨
After a couple of months of intense study, practice, and Inner Circle Mentorship, I’ve landed my first official Sprint!! I’ll be collaborating during a 9-Week Customer Experience Sprint with key members of an AI startup, providing consulting advice, and helping improve the flow, look & feel, and overall experience for a new digital product. The main goal will be to assist the team in establishing product/market fit and proving traction. Among the many fancy exercises I’m planning for this engagement, we’ll collect User Challenges, perform Task Analysis, and build a User Story Map. I will also help them complete a Lean UX Canvas to establish our testing hypotheses, and document a Product Roadmap to identify and prioritize additional features. The pièce de résistance and main deliverable will be an interactive, high-fidelity prototype we’ll use to get feedback from test customers in several rounds of Usability Testing. I am extremely happy and grateful to the AJ&Smart team, for ensuring I did the deed. Special mention of course to @Jonathan Courtney but also to @Rebecca Courtney, @Tim Höfer, and so many others that pointed the way forward. I also want to give thanks to the many colleagues who helped me to grow, and who took time to practice with me some of these exclusive top 1% skills. Too many to mention, so suffice to say if I forgot you I owe you a tall drink ;) whenever you’re in Florida! Here it goes… Thanx to @Graham Thompson @Julie Taplin @Yash Mehta @Jill Banks @Abdul Salam @Benedict Odjobo @Javier von Westphalen @Ömür Yanıkoğlu @Riya Korah @Tarrush Kapoor @Chrissy Braun @Elli Nikolaou @Celine Tran @Teresa Middleton @Irina Volfson @Michelle Audsley Myers @Kristi Shumway @Keith Wasserman @Sabine Braubach @LaYinka Sanni @Lina Robayo @Luca Terminiello @Alexandra Pinegger @Trevor Wood @Kristen Cattell @Hind Bayane @Laure Duchamp @Bret Koontz @Coco Curry @David Marks @Anat Akiva @Talia Johnson @Chris Davis @Shelley McKeating … You’re All Stars!! 🌟✨

Hi, @D Darren MacDonald! It's great to see you here!
Butter, anyone? 🧈
I might be late to the Butter party, but I've recently discovered it and I absolutely LOVE it so far. The nature of interaction feels a lot easier to develop psychological safety in virtual sessions and seems more fun. Does anyone else use Butter or has used Butter? What did you like or dislike about it?

@David Newman I'm hearing similar things from early users, and as a newbie I don't know what that improvement might look like now in comparison to the early days. I feel it probably has some way to go, though.

@D Darren MacDonald Yes! It's great to use as a base planning method for sessions, and keeps the framework top of mind, too. I hadn't actually thought of that — thank you!
