Necessity may be the mother of invention, but fexibility is the progenitor of new collaboration frameworks, especially in in-person forums. Even with our long experience with live events and logistics, occasionally things go awry. Shipments are late or supplies we thought we definitely needed are sold out and unavailable. When faced with logistical snafus, Collaboration Architects excel as transforming problems into solutions.

On August 3, Luke Hohmann, Conteneo CEO and Acting Executive Director for the Every Voice Engaged Foundation, presented the main stage keynote “Awesome Superproblems at Agile 2015 in Washington, DC. Luke's keynote detailed how agile collaborative techniques and practices are being used to tackle wicked problems beyond building software. The problems being tackled are bigger than any one person can solve and exacerbated by inaction -- thus the title "Awesome Superproblems". Luke describes how making progress on solving these Awesome Superproblems is enabling us to find new patterns that can be applied to solve classes of similar problems. And are being used around the world.
It's safe to say that there isn't much I haven't seen in the conference/tradeshow world, having worked for more than a decade on all sides of industry, from show management to vendor to exhibitor. From speaker recruitment to booth design, I thought I'd seen and done it all. That is, until August 3, when I found myself and our VP of Business Development Laura Richardson at the Gaylord Convention Center at National Harbor, Maryland, building a booth for the Every Voice Engaged Foundation from PVC pipe, a couple hundred yards of brown butcher paper and tempura paint.
