This paper explores the process of how meaning emerges, shifts and changes in an innovation course session held between the author and four engineers from a large European production company. The case will be described as a finegrained, auto ethnographic account in the first person present, through a process of narrative recall. An after the fact, reflexive account that builds on discussions with those involved and notes, photographs, e.mails and other written texts made or seen after the fact. The paper focuses on the goings on of a situation, its temporal, performative and improvised unfolding. As such the account and analysis is more descriptive than argumentative. The paper is also deliberately designed to foster a discussion as to how one can actually describe the goings on of a complex process of relating without resorting to a generalised or idealised account, and to raise questions as to how this approach contributes to research.
