As you know me, I'm always working on some random project.
This project, The Red Queen, is about teams and trying ways of getting work done
All of you share explorer traits, I believe you all are looking for ways to master your craft
I encourage you to take this time to practice those skills that you find useful or interesting,
whatever that is
We still need to live with some boundaries that we all can agree on
We are going to split our interactions into chapters
Each chapter is formed by:
its goal is to imagine as many crazy ideas as possible, those ideas may be impossible but could influence or spark innovative ideas, in this phase we want to arm ourselves with as many options as possible
The first act is the opening act, and it’s all about opening - opening people’s minds, opening up possibilities.

In terms of time. Every chapter progress with
Background, Problem statement
List of ideas
Test assumptions and push limits
Small sections of working software
All about reaching the goal
Concrete next steps
A completed Graphic Game Plan
There are no rows in this table
Between meetings, individual and group exploration is encouraged
Graphic Game Plan
A graphic game plan is one way of summarizing the current state, what problems are we facing? what’s next? what are we trying to accomplish?
Moreover, have you asked what have we done all this time, it’s hard for our minds to remember how you thought a month ago, blame the
