Saturday Snapshot!

Saturday Snapshot is hosted by Alyce at At Home with Books. To participate, post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post in the Mister Linky. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don’t post random photos that you find online.

This is my last week in St. Paul for this trip and the week has been devoted to process mapping. Let me just say that this is not nearly as exciting as it sounds. Really, it involves a lot of colored post-it notes, a lot of arguing about which steps come first and the best way to do things, and since we are locked in a small conference room on the lower level of the building with no windows and bad lighting, we’re all going a little stir crazy. Especially since this is what we’re looking at all day:

I don’t know about you, but I’m just about cross-eyed!

    Hooo What a process! Cross-eyed is right.

    I can see where it could drive you nuts! ;o)

    What to focus on first? A bit like a busy power point presentation only much bigger.

    Yeah, that all looks a bit too complicated for me! πŸ™‚

    Well, process mapping might not be exciting but it looks impressive and like you put in a lot of hard work! It does sound like a formula for nuttiness! I hope you arrived at a consensus about how to do what you were there to do and had a successful week…

    Is St. Paul the spot with the largest shopping mall in America?!

    Sort of – the Mall of America is in Minneapolis, I believe. I am proud to say that in all my visits to the area, I have never been there.

    Its absolutely is an art installation! You must frame the photo!

    Yes, that would definitely bring out the crazy in me, too. It has a kind of beautiful order to it, though. Thanks for sharing.

    I’d go stir crazy looking at that myself!

    That is a lot of post-it notes. I can see why you are getting a little stir-crazy πŸ™‚

    Oh… that gave me a flashback to a flowchart I did for a COBOL class way back when. Hope you got out into the sunshine during lunch.

    I would hate that. Glad there are other people who have the ability to not let it drive nyou mad so the rest of us can benefit. Here’s My Saturday Snapshot

    That’s where I would get a stomach ailment to take a few days off LOL….good luck

  14. November 5, 2011 at 11:29 pm

    Wow, that really would make me cross-eyed! Or give me a really big headache…whew!

    My eyes are glazing over just thinking about it.

  16. November 6, 2011 at 12:38 pm

    I know that feeling. When I worked in the computer industry, we had lots of meetings (some that spanned multiple days) with process maps (or flowcharts) that left the participates a little stir-crazy and cross-eyed. Nice photo just the same.

    Is this the mapstorming?

  18. November 7, 2011 at 7:55 pm

    I wouldn’t be able to fight the urge to move some of those post-it notes to other places!!! πŸ˜€

  19. November 15, 2011 at 9:34 pm

    That’s a true reflection of “a picture is worth a thousand words.” Ouch, my eyes are tired …

  20. November 16, 2011 at 1:47 pm

    It looks so nice and organized. But I think it would drive me crazy!
