Design Thinking workshop
Design Thinking Workshop
Openlab is developing a new format for how we work with challenge driven collaborations in order to provide better support and process leadership when we tackle a societal challenge so the solutions we create together are long-term and sustainable. This will replace the workshop format we have worked with up to this point.
This new format is still in the prototype stage, but we hope to be able to test our new concept in the spring of 2018. If you are interested in learning more about these new developments and how we might be able to collaborate together using the new format, please contact Susanne Ringström and Margaret Hertz.
Openlab offers challenge driven Design Thinking workshops. We take on challenges in line with our mission: “enabling societal innovations to improve the quality of life in the Stockholm region”. We believe that working in a creative and user centered manner is key to finding relevant and radical solutions. The workshop participants are often from the “challenge givers” organization and their users. People within research, students, and from our partners in the public sector also join the workshops – something unique to Openlab. The workshops are lead by Design Thinking coaches from our great workshop coach team, with facilitation help from our coach assistant team and coordination by Openlab’s project coordinator.
Openlab also offers hackathons, planned in a similar manner with a societal challenge, transdiciplinary teams and a Design Thinking core, but with more time for the teams to develop solutions.
Examples of previous challenge givers:
- Länsstyrelsen i Stockholm
- Norrmalms stadsdelsförvalting
- Bromma stadsdelsförvaltning
- Stockholm Business Region Development
- Sveriges Radio
- Post- och telestyrelsen
