Soon! Let’s get to up to speed shall we?
While munching on bagels and coffee, I outlined the day’s objectives in different color sharpies on an idea pad. The groups feel much more motivated than they did at 3 a.m; their productivity levels have dramatically increased. Uploading a photo of this sheet to our 3DS wiki got us all on the same page. Leaders stepped forward during the breakfast and we assigned new teams based upon the things that excited 3DSers.
Naruby Schlenker, MBA, initiated a movement to explore features which would make the product appealing to a specific type of consumer. The energy levels in that group can be felt upon entering the George Kozmetsky Room.

Ekaterina Konovalova, Advertising MA, took the initiative to research the market with Shanky Chandra, MBA. They are now validating data in the Alamo Room.
