... and Managing People Who Haven’t Arrived There Yet
Have you ever noticed that all stories are really sub-stories of a bigger story? There is no true beginning and there is no true end. Really great stories actually begin to develop their back-story in fuller depth as you move forward through the part of the tale that the teller wants you to focus on. As I begin to write this story, I’m struck by this same problem. Where exactly does the introduction start and where does the conclusion end? Through the iterations of this very paragraph I have started and restarted a host of times. At some point, you just have to throw the proverbial dart at the screen and let it fly from there: Design.
That is my introduction to how I learned about iteration as a primary concept and tool for design. Of course, even the simplest story is strewn with nuances and sub-themes and hopefully a few of those will rise to the top as well.
