Pioneer groups – John’s blog Saturday 20th October
Trying to find a route to a market, this was a much more challenging session perhaps due in part to following such a stimulating experience the previous week when we met as a relaxed, mutually respectful, self-confident group. We appeared to be working outside our comfort zone this week, with much less focus. Task headings seemed to produce much repetitive discussion with diffuse thinking. Each individual had their own variation of the product and how it would be used. We accomplished less, therefore it was less satisfying. Work in small groups seems to be a more productive dynamic than trying to incorporate the talents of the whole group in a single discussion. Still enjoyed our new friendship group.
