About these articles

A "foundational article" is a landing page - an introduction to the concept, then a series of links to stories and recipes with more detailed information.

A Recipe is a piece of instructional ‘how-to’ content that gives enough detail that people can follow the process. The form we’ll be testing includes the following fields :

  1. Title
  2. Purpose of practice
  3. Where it’s practiced (e.g. what Enspiral teams / ventures?)
  4. Credits (developer / lineage)
  5. Methodology

A Story is a narrative form which reveals the context and purpose from which the process or practice emerged. There are several different forms it could take e.g. I-Story and we can provide framing questions to get the juicy bits out e.g.

  • What was the problem you were grappling with?
  • What were your breakthroughs in relating to that challenge?
  • How did that change how you operate - what you did and how you did it?
  • What impact has this change in practice had?
  • What are the learning edges right now?
