I am excited! The Net-Map Summer School in Vicenza, Italy, wasn’t just fun as it lasted. Our participants were also well prepared to use what they learned in their work. One participant who works in an institution for disabled young men explored the use of Net-Map to make hard but necessary decisions: How to deal with a highly disruptive patient, who is difficult to keep but also difficult to place in another institution? Other case studies we looked at included: How can development projects change the decision making of individual farmers to adapt to climate change? How do you best structure a mentoring network for women entreprenneurs? And: Using Net-Map to compare the network development between different donor-funded projects with similar goals. The first emails are coming in already from participants planning to present the Net-Maps they drew to their organizations or supervisors and they share their experience on their own blogs… As a 1 hour one-on-one consultation within 6 months of the training was part of the package, I am curious to hear where all of these projects and ideas are moving.
