This is the critical review of our project from perspective of team leader. Throughout the Bachelor Degree, we had to deal with multiple small projects, and few bigger ones. Most of the time, we were able to choose our own team, the time was very bound and if the project was bigger, we were tracked more often. The marketing project, with the cooperation of GE Germany, was definitely more mature, but also challenging from the perspective that we had to organize ourselves and manage our time well. For me, personally, the project task itself, was something abstract and unknown. Nevertheless, I find it very valuable, because in the perspective that very soon, we will all leave for internships, we cannot really predict what tasks we will be given. Looking back at the project, I recall it as an intense experience. From the beginning on we have put a certain pressure on our team, starting with design thinking workshops, blogging etc. Some people might say, that these things did not help us; that we could have easily come up with same stuff without spending so much time preparing and taking parting part in the workshops as well as working a lot at home. Nevertheless, I strongly believe that what matters at the end was the experience we have made and what we have taken out of it for our future. My personal three key learning points are: that tracking team members is essential, and that it is extremely easy to hide among 5 people, secondly that not everybody has the same expectations towards the project, and even though we have checked it at the beginning, it does not necessarily mean that these expectations stay until the end, thirdly that the trust among team members is very important. We have worked very well as a team until the end of December; we were very organized, had time to meet up frequently and also spend time together during workshops. The Design Thinking process enabled us to enjoy our time together and develop unique creative idea. Nevertheless, this method had also some drawbacks such as time consumption and the fact, that due to different approach we were able to somehow “skip” the marketing analysis part, what we have realized almost at the end of the project. The initial problems within the team started at the beginning of January with uprising occupation with other projects as well examination period. Although it costed us some nerves and misunderstandings, we became more efficient and were still able to deliver the presentation at the end. Taking the whole project critically, I would agree that we have lost our main focus at some point, but nevertheless, I believe that we were doing this project to develop ourselves further and that nothing we have done can be considered as useless. I have personally learnt a lot from this project, so, I believe, my team members.

Prototyping

During our last group session on Wednesday 8th of January, we have divided final tasks among team members and started to work on the final concept of our project.  Each person got assigned to certain parts of the project and received quite a big homework.
Today I (Anna:) have met in the morning with Jonas to work on the marketing campaign creative concept, and actually it’s already 20:15, and we are still sitting at the university.

Nevertheless, we have created an amazing (in our opinion:) marketing campaign, that we can’t wait to show to you:)

Google Hangout of GEeks

Google Hangout went fine today. Since not everybody showed up, we did not go as far as we wanted to go. Nevertheless, we had some fun with “special features” that Google+ offers like crazy hats or random cat faces, which I think had an impact on our creativity flow 😛  Thanks Jonas&Valerie for a great chat 🙂 we have decided on following meeting dates:

8.01 workshop Design Thinking #ideation and #prototyping

13.01 final task distribution and work on mgmt report 🙂
