Lee Kim with facilitators all over the world will lead the game “Memory Kaleidoscope” - an online experience highlighting the big and small moments that shape us. Bring an open heart, a curious mind and let’s discover the game together. Feel free to learn a bit about the game before joining at memorykaleidoscope.com

Marc will joined by his friends and fellow facilitators Yuen Yen Tsai 蔡婉茵, Adam StJohn Lawrence and another secret guest as we experiment with different methods of prototyping collaboratively online. You will be helping and bringing your best creative techniques and skills. Join us for some fun learning!
Kindness can be expressed in different ways, but what does it take to truly show Courageous Kindness? Join Cornelia Walther to go on a journey in which we can ultimately manifest kindness. To manifest it, we will explore the POZE paradigm, and it will take us to reflect on four core values: generosity, compassion, honesty and courage.
Join us for a casual session to explore, discuss and experiment. We will be reflecting on what we think is the most ideal digital service. As designers, we use different methodologies to develop services that are engineered to create the most favorable design outcome for the intended user. Does it happen? Share your journeys. We will be using an open discussion and some exploration format to energize everyone towards healthy exchanges.
Let’s chat about what we see as most workable as opposed to the least effective, over a nice brewing conversation at the WWJ Tea Bar Beer Pub.
If you have a hard time explaining what you do, or find your Linkedin headline or Instagram bio too abstract, this session is for you! With a creative exercise, our guest speaker Claudia Mayer will help you uncover key elements of your work, why it matters and to whom. With the help of a simple pitch template you formulate a new version, and test it on the spot to spice it up.
When we build products, we often have very specific behavioral goals in mind, things we want users not just to think and feel but actually do. And yet our design process so rarely takes what we know about changing behaviors into account. Join behavioral scientist Matt Wallaert as he talks about Competing Pressures Design, a psychology-based method for thinking about product and service design, using science, startups, and plenty of practical examples to help you put theory into practice.
Human centeredness as a concept seems to be new in organisations. Design Thinking puts the human being in the center of attention. And by doing so Design Thinking is able to counterbalance the sole focus on developing new products and services.
Yet there are more sources that put humans in the center. Sources that have been with us for a very long time. Ancient wisdoms as Kabbalah and Confucius.
In this session we explore these ancient wisdoms and discover how they can fuel your design thinking mind. By doing so we hope you find natural connections between your ancient wisdoms and your design thinking practice, and that these connections inspire you in a playful way to continue your work.
Wednesday Web Jam no. 84 - "How Design Thinkers keep their brain in check”(Insights with best practice sharing and connecting) with Sandra Lutz-Brown and Ana Marhuenda
The human brain is great and mysterious and wonderful – and also quite unreliable and fallible when it comes to understanding things and making decisions. Organisational Development Trends and research into the future of work have long identified the importance of putting neuroscientific insights and understanding of how our brain works (or sabotages us) at the centre of their designs.
We will tickle your brains with some fun and surprising insights into the design of our thinking organ. What does it actually mean to get our brain to really play on our side and not against us when we engage with problems and other people around us when we learn about so many of its in-built design faults? How can the ways Design Thinking works help us keep our brains in check?
In this WWJ session, Howard will be sharing his brief influences of being an experiential and experimental designer, where he will invite the audience to explore an inquiry of both Service Design and Sense-Making and will initiate discussions around it. He will also storytell his experiment of the exploration of global service design through sense-making, where he will communicate his unique service observations and insights from the global cities of Manila, Tokyo, Beirut, Dubai, and Hong Kong, which includes his experimental global journey key takeaways and conclusions.
Also, there will be a remote interactive service design mini-sensemaking group session
ending that brief remote collaboration with an open sharing of service design experiences.
