A hike with discussions gives new inspiration. Protrepos held a special kind of management course called Walk to Explore.
Birgitte Nortvig created a 'sandbox' over her experience and commented:
My experience of the exercise was, that I got a deeper understanding of, what is important to me, and what I should work towards. When I saw my table (picture to the right) and the physical artifacts, it gave a new perspective, and my experience of necessity, motivation, demotivation and anxiety became a physical feeling for me - and not, as normally, a rational appraisal of, what is right or wrong for me.
Afterwards it was easier for me to go through the changes in practice, when I already had seen the change materialize for me in the exercise.
I see material story lab as a very concrete and action-oriented way to work with evolution and change - both on a personal and organizational level.
