rebeccaFl got their new illustration or graphics by running a design contest:
See, Do, Repeat Model Design
Check out rebeccaFl's Illustration or graphics contest…
This design is for a book I am writing about entrepreneurship. The title is See, Do, Repeat: The Practice of Entrepreneurship and I want to illustrate my models. this will be a two phase design.
What's your vision?
I want a diagram or design that best illustrates the model I am using in a book. Below I provide what I am trying to describe graphically. I want it to be simple yet instructive. The beginning point of developing any competency education model is to understand the underlying factors that lead to successful application. In this case, how do entrepreneurs think and act? To do this, it was important to study hundreds of entrepreneurs to see if there were competencies that would emerge. I needed to collect hundreds of stories. To do this, I didn’t want to depend upon the stories of the 1%—the superstar entrepreneur stories that are told repeatedly. I wanted to get the stories of the other 99%—the everyday entrepreneurs that make a difference but whose stories are not often shared on a wide scale. Because this is where most of my students and clients would be. This process of talking to entrepreneurs and figuring out what really differentiated them started with a very long list of competencies, however, through hundreds of interviews with everyday entrepreneurs some very exciting findings began to emerge. First, despite the uniqueness of their entrepreneurial endeavors, there was a common mindset that was driving their choices. Second, while they all depended upon a common set of abilities and skills to develop these competencies, when they didn’t possess a necessary skill or ability, they sought it out in someone else who could help them. Third, and perhaps even more exciting to note is that the more they developed their mindset, the more likely they would attract others who could fill in those gaps. The interviews began to tell a story of mindset, intention, and attraction. From this work, the three competencies began to emerge. These three competencies then provided a model for creating a learning path for the experience and practice of entrepreneurship that I could share with my students and clients • The ability to recognize entrepreneurial opportunities (SEE) • The willingness to act on them (DO) • The resilience and perseverance to keep going (REPEAT) [insert figure 1 (diagram the relationships above) about here] Having a model and a language was a start but there was still the question of how to share the model and how to help others learn this practice. I already knew that experiential education was the answer but I needed to better understand the cognitive processes of learning. As I talked to these entrepreneurs and pieced together their stories, something simple yet profound began to crystalize in my data. The See, Do, Repeat model was not just a set of competencies and skills that are required for any entrepreneurial endeavor. They are also the customized, experiential pathway to gaining those skills and the entrepreneurial mindset. [insert figure 2 (relationship described above) about here] To fully understand how this works we have to consider what is often referred to as competency structures or the architecture of a competency-based learning model. This architecture is built by first identifying the primary competencies required for a specific task or job. For each competency, skills and abilities are identified. The learner is then asked to provide some evidence of skill or ability in three ways—which are hierarchical from a learning perspective—knowledge, application, and mastery. From birth, we have all learned by seeing, doing, and repeating. When we learned to walk, we saw our parents and siblings walking so we tried it and we kept trying it until we got the hang of it. We fell down but we were determined and so we accomplished our goal. Walking was the competency we, and the grown-ups around us, wanted. Standing up, balancing, learning to put one foot in front of the other were the skills we learned. Repeated practice allowed us to gain mastery of walking. We saw, we did, and we repeated until we learned to walk. Competency-based learning doesn’t require mastery. That is why it is such a beautiful model for entrepreneurship education. Instead, it is a model that can be used as a reminder of what is important and where to focus our learning. A well-designed competency structure becomes a model for what to prioritize in learning in order to reach a specified outcome. Remember, entrepreneurship is practice and like yoga or meditation, the goal is not mastery. The goal is showing up each day. It is unlikely any of us will fully master each of the three competencies in the See, Do, Repeat model on any given day or with respect to any given endeavor. In fact, my research and experience has taught me that mastery of all of these is not important. There are other ways, which I will share, to reach tremendous success without mastering all of these. What is important is having a focused practice. The elegance of the See, Do, Repeat model for the practice of entrepreneurship is that it describes both what to know and how to learn it. While entrepreneurship is never easy or simple, having a focused way to develop your entrepreneurial practice can be extremely valuable. In fact, having a curated approach that can be integrated into everyday life and work may be the only way someone who is working 24/7 on an entrepreneurial venture can take the time to improve their practice.
Figure 1 described above is meant to show the See, Do, Repeat model of the practice of entrepreneurship. Then I would like to build on that to show the See, Do, Repeat practice of how we learn. So in essence I am looking for a model that would be shown in part the first time and then with the added elements of how we learn in the second. I want this to be very streamlined, simple yet clearly and graphically demonstrate what I am saying the paragraphs. I also want movement. I considered an infinity sign but thought that didn't show forward movement. something like the agile models designs might work (https://www.istockphoto.com/vector/agile-development-process-infographic-gm1264320878-370268788 or https://www.google.com/search?q=agile+methodology+images&rlz=1C5CHFA_enUS910US910&tbm=isch&source=iu&ictx=1&fir=bdING0amMyYUSM%252CbG2eS9asdhVTnM%252C_&vet=1&usg=AI4_-kTfTb8q9njgfxHRNCr8YfsqR6gMAg&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjzrM7Pxo_xAhVuh-AKHSfdBpsQ9QF6BAgMEAE). I want something simple, memorable and instructive. thanks!
