I’m thinking about this one–I believe there is a place for “survey” meetings and have learned a lot from them, but at the same time I can’t think of any that wouldn’t have been improved by a few “doing” oriented sessions. And this was a central part of our philosophy for our recent hybrid virtual workshop: that we needed the discussion groups to *produce* something.
I disagree with Yoda–Jedi are too risk-averse. Sometimes the useful result of a project is lessons learned about what to do differently next time. And that’s a worthwhile result. There’s a big difference between “do not,” and “try and fail.”
