Last week I taught two 2-day Idea Mapping Workshops for Boeing in Renton, WA. For the 24,000+ of you who have been through this workshop, you know the class starts out immediately with an activity similar to the game of Concentration. Yesterday I posted some of the name tents from the first workshop (if you’d like to guess those as well) and today we have name tents from last week’s second workshop.

Each learner is asked to draw a picture of their name using color, images, numbers and either adding or subtracting letters. I like to collect some of them and then see if you can guess their names. The name tents represent only the first name of the participant.

Purpose of this activity is to immediately set the stage for a class that is far from the norm, get creative juices flowing, to put people in an uncomfortable situation (because many say they cannot draw), and it acts as a baseline for the drawing activities that are introduced later in the course.

After you’ve had a day or two to guess these names, I’ll post the answers. Have fun!
