Balancing these analytical techniques with stories and story techniques inspires more empathy and imagination. Facts offer the "what?" Stories get at the "so what?" This session will be an interactive experience that explores story-based techniques for creative collaboration. You will experience a variety of facilitation techniques and tools that incorporate stories into a key step in creative problem solving: defining the problem to solve. Learn techniques like user empathy stories. story listening, campfire story circles.
