Rolling in Deuel County

The design:South Dakota process is really a dance in three parts:

  1. Preparation: getting ready for the team by beginning the dialogue in the community,
  2. The Charrette: the intense three days where the team and community mix it up, and
  3. Implementation: making the dreams and visions real.

Implementation is usually the toughest part. It’s easy to get fired up during the “big event,” but once the team leaves town it gets harder to keep the momentum going. Not so in Deuel County, at least so far. They’ve convened the “Big Meeting,” and more people keep jumping into the circle to make things happen. Very exciting.
