Abstract

A growing body of research is drawing attention to the material practices that support verbal exchanges and cognitive processes in collective sensemaking. In this paper, building on an ethnographic study of a design consulting firm, we develop a process model that accounts for the interplay between conversational and material practices in the transition from individual to group level sensemaking, and we begin to unpack how the “materialization” of cognitive work supports the collective construction of new shared understandings.
