Dear list members:

Below, I have assembled a list of sensemaking tools and instruments that I
have seen various people use in Knowledge Management

I'm looking for samples of templates and examples of uses of each one of
the tools below.

As well, please suggest any tools that I may have missed that people use
in sense-making.

I'm willing to share a 'summary' with everyone who contributes an example.

Please send diagrams as a "Word" or "Pagemaker" attachment.
