  2. 2. Question Formulation Technique
  3. 3. Question Formulation Technique Ground rules 1. Write each question down. 2. Questions only, do not answer them. 3. Question can be both close probe and open probe. 4. No stopping until time is expired, keep thinking and writing down more questions. Process 1. Individuals write down as many questions as possible. (Five minutes) 2. Share with group and develop more questions. (Five minutes) 3. Groups change close probe questions to open probe questions and vice versa and then decide as a group on the best three questions. (10 minutes) 4. Report out. (Five minutes) Torture can be justified.

  5. 5. A More Beautiful Question • What if I could paint over my mistakes when typing, the way I do when painting? • Why aren’t the players urinating more after the games? • What if a car windshield could blink? • Why can’t I see the pictures now? • Why aren’t all enterprise software applications built like Amazon and eBay? 10/26/2016 5
  6. 6. Royals at NTX Eagles | 05/17/2016 | Recap Story The Royals seize victory thanks to late double, drop the NTX Eagles 10-5 The Royals outlasted the NTX Eagles on Tuesday after four lead changes, squeaking out a 10-5 win. Sean K racked up two RBIs on two hits for the Royals. He singled in the third inning and homered in the fourth inning. The Royals jumped out to an early 1-0 lead in the top of the first. A triple by Jackson J, scoring Hudson Z started the inning off. The Royals never surrendered the lead after the third inning, scoring four runs on a two-run double by Hudson and a groundout by Cody C. The Royals increased their lead with four runs in the fourth. Nathan F's single got things going, bringing home Pearson E. That was followed up by Colton W's single, plating Nathan F. A one-run fifth inning helped bring the NTX Eagles within four. A steal of home by Jake sparked the NTX Eagles' rally. The Royals closed the game out when Nathan F got Cameron to strike out. "Powered by Narrative Science and GameChanger Media. Copyright 2016.
