I just got back from a great trip to Burlington, VT, where I touched base with Amy Kirschner of the Vermont Sustainable Exchange. She and cocreator Kyra Pinchiera have been working on creating an inquiry process to assist people in making ideas happen.
Many of us have grand visions of the future, but to be able to tranform those into a “minimum viable product” – something tangible and actionable – can be a bit of an art.
She showed me her sketches for taking idea to action, and i made them into a little graphic. Enjoy!
Phi Beta Iota: Where this disappoints is in turning to art in the early stage when the marketplace does not “get it.” Some kind of mass educational shock appears called for–Shock Education. Revolutions start with violent shocks–no one has achieved a non-violent shock that leads to a non-violent revolution Of, By, and For We the People, that we know of.
