IDEATION day

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:)

Project Management

Another book recommendation from me this week- no, we are not turning into some kind of a book club, and no- we did not became the masters in project management after reading it (yet)- Nevertheless i think that it might be actually useful to have some knowledge on tools which can be used to make your project more efficient.

What I consider unusual or even special for this book is the fact that it is not another big serious book, elaborating page by page on how amazing PM is.
it is a very comprehensive guide, mostly written with bullet points, divided into many sections, what makes it clear and understandable for most of the readers.
Sections such as tips, notes and caution exposed to me the most important content and never let to skip them.
“The absolute minimum” notes at the end of each chapter would work well for either lazy/busy people who don’t wanna put effort into reading the whole book or to ones who would like to review in the future the information they need.
The book covers the multiple steps of PM such as planning controlling execution as well as deals with newest trends&technology impact.
Although there is nothing better than the real life experience, the book is a fine theoretical background.
I have bought mine on Amazon for less than 3$ (used, but in very very very good state), so it was just one cappuccino less in that week:)- I assume it was worth it 🙂
