Why a blog?

Field Notes is an attempt to share information, new ideas and stories about community development that catch my attention. The idea for Field Notes comes from Stephen Denning's The Springboard: How Storytelling Ignites Action in Knowledge-Era Organizations in which he tells an impressive "story" of how storytelling can serve as a tool for organizational change and knowledge management.

"By a springboard story, I mean a story which enables a leap in understanding by the audience so as to grasp how an organization or community or complex system may change."
– Stephen Denning

Hopefully, some of these notes (stories) act as a springboard for improvements in your community. This blog compliments Healthy Mountain Communities' organizational newsletter and webpage.

Thanks for your interest.
