Quick Update: Modular Version of the Shared Situation Guide is Now Available

The Shared Situation Guide is built on top of the ProxThink growth model. I’m psyched about this new way to deploy it!

Shared Situations Come Alive

The modular version of the shared situation guide is now available!

Why the Modular Version?

  1. It’s easier to focus on each process. The processes are the Vadi Agreement, Proxri, ProxMonitors processes. In the original one-page version, those processes were sections of the document. But in the modular version, they become separate documents, making it easier to focus on each one.
  2. It makes getting around and navigating faster and easier.

If You’re New to the Shared Situation Guide …

Just FYI, this modular version requires a little time to set up the section documents and navigation links. So if you’re new to the guide, you’ll get a sense of it faster with the original one-page version.

You can check out and start using the modular version here. It’s also linked to from the original guide here (see the “modular version” link in the first bullet on the page).

Hope you like it…

Working on a Modular Version of the Shared Situation Guide

So far, it seems cleaner and easier to navigate!

Shared Situations Come Alive

When I created the original shared situation guide, I challenged myself to create just one main document that a group could use to collaborate using the processes of the ProxThink growth model. However, the more I use it, the more I realize that a small set of documents might also work well. So I’m working on a modular version, where the main sections of the original version become separate documents. So far, I’m liking it and excited about it. I’ll let you know when it’s available to try out!

New post on the Shared Situations site: How Good Feelings Might Arise from Using the Shared Situation Guide

As you may know, the Shared Situations Guide is built on top of the ProxThink growth model. I recently wrote a new piece for the Shared Situations blog: How Good Feelings Might Arise from Using the Shared Situation Guide.

The Shared Situations site has links to begin using the guide, provides starter sets for some common situations, points to workshops for learning the guide, and helps people find and collaborate with others using the guide for shared situations. Check it out at sharedsituations.wordpress.com.

Using ProxThink-Based Shared Situation Guide to Collaborate on Meetup Ideas/Planning

I’m using the Shared Situation Guide (which uses the ProxThink growth model), as a collaborative document to collect meetup ideas and plan meetups for the Variety People LA meetup group. Here’s an upcoming meetup related to that. If you live in the Los Angeles area, please consider joining us!

If you’d like to adapt this document for your meetup group, or other meeting or event planning, please contact me.
