Today, finally, we were able to meet for Ideation workshop. Even though it was quite hard to concentrate for some people (like me xd), we went trough it and generated the outcome that we are really proud of.
First of all what is the ideation? Ideation is the process of generating the ideas. In order to boost our team spirit after long time no-see we have started with team building exercise. For the ideation process, we have again used one of the methods the Design Thinking process provided with. The first part of the session, we have generated “How might we help” questions which were related to POV. We were generating the questions on how we can actually help our Persona (lovely Helmut from Munich) in different issues such as trust, recognition or simple networking. We have then grouped the questions in t several categories and had couple ideation sessions on basically answering these questions.
We don’t wanna share our idea online yet, but believe me-it’s awesome! At least in our point of view (and remember, we have high expectations 😉 2morrow, You can also have a look on our Project Team section, which will get a special update:)
we don’t really complain, cause it’s perfect time to calm down before the exam cramming. Since there are still 5 days before the school starts, I would like to give u a book recommendation.
