User Research -- Next steps?

Hey, all! I have been looking at using the User Research Template. After it's compiled, how do you take the next step and process it.

My thought was to copy the stickies and open up a blank canvas to theme the answers. I want to get a broad understanding of an issue, and I was wondering if this would allow me to see and communicate the larger patterns in the stories I will be collecting.

Thoughts? Have you done this before? Any lessons learned I should consider?
