Workshop @Nordes 2013: Designing Value And Reframing Challenges

Current global challenges need a new way to look at how we design products, services and solutions. One the one hand these global trends influence innovation but on the other hand the user and his individual needs have to be taken into account. But often we stick on our viewpoint, experiences and therefore solution patterns in order to create new ideas.

These challenges motivated us to offer a workshop at Nordes Conference to guide the participants through a process of changing viewpoints and reframing the problem to create new ideas and solutions.

Therefore the workshop is structured into three steps where teams will present their solutions and rotate these solutions for further elaboration to another team. The workshop combines elements from Design Thinking, Change Management, Lean Startup and Leadership principles. 

Not the solution itself but the experiences participants will make during the process are the most important part of the workshop.

OPEN JAPAN - DAY 2

The second day at OpenJapan was really great. All nodes and cities were working very efficient and we produced at the end of the day around 70 problem descriptions and ideas. It seems also that OpenJapan was very well published all over the world - we counted around 650 tweets with our hashtag #OpenJapan.

With a lot of energy and a great Red Bull, Pizza and Sushi breakfast we started into the third and final sprint.
