doodles 2

Meeting Goal: Capture current Access Code business process, analyze and determine gaps then brain storm ideas for a new and improved Access Code process.  And then

Holy Diversionary Tactics, Batman.

The meeting was diverted to “How to draw a better stick figure.”

Here are the questions the team had to ask themselves to declare the drawing of a stick figure had indeed improved.

1. Is the modified stick figure drawing stable and repeatable? Yes, Annie is able to draw Sassy Lady several time in a row.

2. Did the stick figure improve? 100% percent improvement; Sassy Lady is much more professional than Mr. Grabbyhands.

3. Standardize the stick figure process.  Yes, given plenty of Post-It note pads and magic markers, the team can reproduce Sassy Lady in various meetings held through the following business year.

Annie rocked the doodle pad!
