Peer Group Presentation - COV: North Commons Park Plan

I am intentionally not providing you with a template for this presentation. Instead, I'd like to see you put your creative and critical thinking skills to work. Really imagine that Paul wants to hire a consulting team to support his project. He'll contextualize the work to date, its overarching aims, stakeholders, strengths, and challenges. Your team's job is to interpret what you hear using the various principles, processes, and tools you've engaged with throughout this course. If helpful, consider the following prompts to get you going:

  • What is your understanding of the North Commons Park project?

  • What about the particular context in which it sits? (Geographically, culturally, historically, etc.)

  • What does this work aim to achieve? Put another way, what kind of transformational change does it aspire to realize?

  • What is working? Not working?

  • Which system levers are ripe for engagement?

  • What strategies do you propose to amplify the project's strengths and overcome challenges? Why?

  • How will you integrate creative practices? Why?

  • What resources might you need to realize your vision?
