David's Portfolio

  •  HBR "75 Years of Management Ideas & Practice"
    I selected the following large Storymap's as representative examples of my information design work at The Grove where I was a lead designer on the project. Each of them were critical in moving us to another level of confidence and excitement about this big picture way of working. What these photos do not show, of course, is the rich process of facilitated design meetings that we led as a way of generating this material.

My Strategic Visioning Collaborators

  • RachelSmith
    I've included this photo album of some of the people in The Grove's associate network that use our facilitation and Strategic Visioning methods integrally in their work. They are my teachers and I theirs. Collaboration networks are behind most truly innovative, robust methodologies, and our is no exception. Claiming credit as an individual would be like a tree claiming credit for the forest. If you aren't here and know that you should be, send me you picture and a writeup and I'll post it.

Partners for Change Model

  • Sustainabilityplayersmap
    These are two supportive visuals for a Partners for Change model I co-designed with Sissel Waage and Ruth Rominger. It shows how we would bring multiple sustainability researchers and activists together around critical issues and support them to create collaborative efforts in media and tool creation.

This story is so beautiful, David. Thank you for the gift of making life so delightfully simple and fundamentally Human.

David, knowing you when you were such a young genius and your mother, also; , I again marvel at your way of expressing almost, exactly, the similar experiences/epihanies I have had with my mother and the care center here. (The two faciltities even sound like they may be owned by the same chain). Interesting: my grandmother was Penn./Dutch also. I do both acctg. and the frequent checks/outings here. I guess Medicaid will take over care center costs if all funds are exhausted, but probably not the extra aide costs? Needless to say, Jim and I keep up our long-term care ins. and take advantage of increases they offer for per diem payment. The astounding thing is even younger people do a stint at the care center sometimes if they lack too many life skills. We all need to be informed and prepared for the experience if we should have an accident or surprise health problem. Mother, as your Mom, played piano and organ beautifully for so many years. This smaller community garners more caring and more entertaining types, which I am thankful for.

Fondly, Pat

You're touching report of your mother's present condition was wonderfully well done. I remember you and her coming to the Sausalito Presbyterian Church when I was the pastor there.

Two years prior to my mother's passing, she was in a situation similar to your mothers. During that time she did not know who we were and it was extremely difficult for us to visit her because each visit was accompanied by a great deal of sadness.

My sister is now in a similar though not identical situation. Two years ago she had a massive stroke and is 95% paralyzed. She can talk–barely–, remembers some things but is often confused.

Blessings on you, your Mom and your family.
