WWJ no. 126 - "WWJ BOOK CLUB: Think again by Adam Grant" - reading with Steve Bosak and Ximena Durán
In this session, Steve Bosak and Ximena Durán shared with us some insights about the book "Think Again", written by Adam Grant. Rethinking is a skillset & mindset which is needed more than ever in a fast changing world. In an interactive way participants reflected of moments in which a strong thought or opinion changed and they journey they went to. One of the insights from the book, is not only having a support network but a challenge network as well. We enjoyed going on "challenge dates" and expand our thinking.
WWJ NO125 How Might We Fail Fast and Early to Succeed Sooner AND Sustain those Changes Longer BY Warren Yu
Answer: By arming ourselves with a simple-yet-powerful philosophy based upon 3,500-year-old far Eastern principles underpinned by infinity and yin-yang theories. It’s called “polarity management,” and in this session intrapreneur Warren Yu will help us CREATE A CAR COMPANY to help us practice it! Don’t worry, it’s way easier than it sounds. Four cool things you’ll get from this session: Working knowledge of polarity management theory. Practical, in-situ, ad hoc, and online community experience populating a “polarity map.” A high-resolution blank polarity map PDF for your unfettered use. Participation in a learning experience that distills 2 days’ worth of lectures down to 15 minutes by using computer animation and live overlays that... Engages participants more quickly and effectively, Helps participants retain information longer, Eases comprehension for non-English-speakers, and Enables participants to immediately and perpetually review archived material.
In this session, we will be exploring Innovation management, more particularly in the phase of identifying opportunities and mapping them for further development and engagement.
Some topics that will be covered in the session are: What is Innovation, the search for value, innovation ecosystem, innovation culture, mapping your vision and the future of innovation culture
Exclusion happens when we solve problems using our own biases. Whether it’s due to permanent, temporary, or situational limitations, everyone experiences exclusion as they interact with products and services. We as designers seek and use them as opportunities to create new ideas and inclusive designs. Instead of defining a disability as a personal health condition, the methodology argues that a disability should be defined as mismatched human interactions. During this session, Josephine told the story of how Microsoft has created a Design methodology that enables and draws on the full range of human diversity, and how we can apply it.
Policies are all around us and govern the way we live, work, collaborate and how we use everyday products and services. But not all policies are designed for equity or accessibility. Often we ignore verbose legalese and just accept the terms and conditions until something goes wrong. How might we apply a more structured design process to policy making? What are the different layers and areas that policy needs to be investigated and designed for our products of the future?
In this Web Jam, we’ll unpack the different layers of policy and consider the implications, governance, accessibility and processes necessary for designing a speculative product in the metaverse.
How do we make use of design in our daily activities? Dhruva Paknikar will help us explore that question by delving into the what, how and why of applications of the design process in our daily activities.
In this session we will learn about everyday design, acknowledge the design presence around us, discuss various aspects of everyday design and enjoy the process.
Dhruva Paknikar is a prolific designer and a global entrepreneur having corporate presence in India, Europe, South East Asia, Middle east & The United States. Dhruva is the founder and MD of ‘Dominix Global Design Private Limited’, world’s best young design company practicing in lifestyle, Industrial, Communication, Strategy, Digital and Space Design.
In this session, we are going to be jamming the color yellow, a goldish, smile, laughter, the sun, and a sunflower to explore how can we cultivate more happiness-driven growth, what gets in the way and how can we overcome it.
Make sure to wear something yellow and get ready to smile! If you have a goldfish, feel free to bring one along too.
An interactive, experimental and unusual session exploring avenues of BodyMind intelligence and language in relation to the aesthetics of nature.
One portal of inspiration that is constantly available to us is the natural world around us. This session invites you to actively expand your innovation and expressive lens, to include the elements (of which we are made and in constant interaction with), and begin to discover the many ways in which nature inspires our perceptions and creative work. Let's get outside of our brains and see what there is to discover.
Please note that due to daylight savings ending in Europe, the start time for US Eastern time will be at *12.00* instead.
Emily Poel and Colin Skelton are collaborators in creating the BodyMind Lab., an experimental space devoted to conceptualising and innovating practices supporting body-mind intelligence. Our goal is to bridge the body/mind gap by curating the current scientific discourse on embodied cognition and bringing it into concrete, physical practice, through the reflective merging of felt-sense and intellect.
Richard will tell us the story of Procter & Gamble’s Innovation GYM, how it was established and operates.
He will share the five elements of the GYM model:
i) Physical Venue/Studios,
ii) Operations Team Structure,
iii) Key Innovation Tools,
iv) Innovation Coach/Facilitator Network, and
v) Management Structure.
These Elements worked in synergy to create and maintain a thriving Innovation Engine at P&G for over a decade! We will dive into one of the tools used in the GYM, the Basadur Innovation Style Scatterbrains Profile, through a hands-on exercise in MURAL.
