We use use the blog function for things that are time-bound. This part of the site acts as a journal of our experience. We post on our blog under the following categories:

1. News
  This is a general news category for announcements of various sorts.
2. BEtreat
  This category is for announcements and reports on our BEtreat workshops. We separated this from news because some people may want to subscribe only to posts about BEtreats.
3. Reflections
  This category is our learning journal where we reflect on our work, on meetings and conversations with people, and on the things we think about.
4. Travel
  Here we announce trips that we think some people may want to know about, publish photos, and report on our travel experience.


  • You can always use categories and tags in the sidebar to reach these posts
  • See below for ways to subscribe to individual categories of posts


We use this website as a channel to publish various types of resources. We publish resources as blog posts under the following categories:

1. Frequently asked questions (FAQ’s)
  Under this category are short posts in response to questions people often ask. We will be answering one additional question a month. Feel free to submit one.
2. Practice

This category is for tools, templates, frameworks, check-lists and other documents useful for practitioners.

3. Theory
  Resources under this category include definitions, commentaries, and more academic or theoretical papers.
4. Publications
  This is the general category for longer papers and articles published on this site.
5. Slides
  We are often asked to share our presentation slides. However, our slides are usually not self-explanatory. Under this category, we will slowly publish our most popular slides, along with an explanation of the contents.
