Hi, Joy! I really love this idea (along with you "Cost of Innovation" post) and am excited to continue thinking through them in our "Ideate" phase, where we can build prototypes of methods to test assumptions. How might we infuse our communities with this kind of thinking? Is it a matter of putting posters, games, etc. on the walls? Can we develop an "Assumption Buster" game or tool? Eager to think this through in more detail, and I hope you share more ideas with another post!
