By Hector Fernando Burga The process of brainstorming ideas in a collaborative manner has been a central feature of the formation of D-Lab. This images belongs to one of our first sessions when D-Lab Supervisors and GSR’s came together to make a list of the services, workshops and consultations that would define our scope. Over time we have been able to fine tune our process by accomplishing organizational tasks, achieving clear role identification and working in subgroups. The experience of turning words on paper into a functioning organization is one of the rewarding aspects of D-Lab’s formation.
