Idea Poaching

Nawwwww, I’m not going to steal anyone’s work.  However, I hope that my perusal of other student’s work will help me to zero in on my final project idea.  We are an ambitious bunch! A lot of our ideas are over the top – tackling large, complex topics.  I suppose that’s a function of being a consultant and doing the work that we do on a day-to-day basis.  We deal with complex issues all the time – we really aren’t afraid to tackle anything.

I encouraged one classmate to take a certain angle on their project that focused on the story of one individual.  Another classmate was ready to take on something huge, so I tried to help them whittle their story down to one phase of a larger process. It seems like this is advice I need to take myself!  Especially after seeing everyone’s video submissions this week, I’m really excited to see what everyone comes up with for their final projects.

  1. Nice work! You are commenting to others the remarks I might have made. I think also that people are reaching for anything to tell a story about, rather then the project specs for something that is not explained well or understood as we find it in the world.
