1. In order to prepare for the next 3.5 months and ready an implementation schedule, I took over one of our classrooms and used a newly installed blackboard wall to get everything in view: key dates, deliverables (required and nice-to-haves), experts, and competition. The result was an intense schedule for February, making/building/testing like a madman in March, and prepping final designs, process book, and presentation materials in April. Here. We. Go!
