WE DESIGN AND FACILITATE WORKSHOPS TO COCREATE THE INTERNET OF THINGS

COCREATE THE INTERNET OF THINGS

VISION

Mobile and sensor technologies offer great opportunities, yet turning these means into solutions that are relevant for people is not self-evident. Therefore we believe in co-creating the Internet of Things (IoT) by facilitating multi-disciplinary workshops. We aim to ideate meaningful and innovative IoT solutions together with end-users and members of your organization.

WORKSHOPS

The workshops are carefully designed based on proven facilitation methodologies. There can be chosen out of several workshop packages, the packages can be ordered separately or can be combined. Although our off the shelf workshop packages are applicable in many situations, we also design custom workshops according to the wishes of your organization and the amount of participants.

INSIGHTS

Each workshop package is designed with a certain goal in mind and leads to different insights. A complete workshop consists of the Starter, Intermediate and Advanced Package, which together contain six steps and have a duration of two and a half hours. During this process a full IoT concept is co-created and among others insights in end-user requirements are gained.

IN TWO AND A HALF HOURS WE DEVELOPED A FULL IOT CONCEPT TOGETHER WITH END-USERS, DESIGNERS AND DEVELOPERS. NORMALLY THIS TAKES US HALF A YEAR AND THEN WE WOULDN’T EVEN HAVE INVOLVED PEOPLE FROM THE TARGET GROUP YET.

SCENARIO BUILDING

During this half hour workshop package one or more scenarios are collectively build by means of an interaction card technique. During this workshop several real world cases are evaluated and discussed. The resulting scenarios provide insights in the needs and wishes of end-users and are generally used as a starting point for further ideation.

INTERMEDIATE PACKAGE

...

CONCEPT BUILDING

Interactions between people and things can take place in a wide variety of ranges (PAN, LAN, Wan). Understanding and visualizing these interactions is not easy. With the intermediate package the intangible is made tangible by means of a co-creation toolkit. In one and a half hours a full IoT concept is build and a wide variety of insights are gained.

ADVANCED PACKAGE

...

SERVICE BUILDING

In our advanced packages we elaborate about existing IoT concepts or IoT concepts build by means of our intermediate package. We facilitate a half hour workshop process around communication between people and things (graphical user interfaces), selling IoT solutions (business models) or privacy and security issues (legal constraints).

TAILORED WORKSHOPS

Do you have a specific workshop idea in mind and the default workshop packages are not covering your needs and wishes? Order a custom workshop package! We design a totally new workshop according to your situation, stakeholders and preferences. The experience and effect of the workshop is evaluated on forehand in a pilot session.

DATA

Analyze how things communicate to each other and gain insights in data types by visualizing the data flow between smart objects.


ENGAGEMENT

End-users are involved from the beginning, they gain a sense of ownership and have the potential of becoming ambassadors.


GUI

INTAKE

Are you interested in one of our workshop packages or do you want us to design a custom workshop for you? Please don’t hesitate to contact us! When you contact us we send you an email back to plan an intake meeting. After the meeting we will send you an open-ended offer specified to your needs.

Even if you order one of our default workshop packages we can customize certain elements for you. If you want something completely different we can design a totally new workshop according to your preferences. When the design is finished we contact you to plan an optional pilot session.

FACILITATION

After the design is complete we facilitate your multi-stakeholder workshop. On request we also capture and analyze the workshop data and translate the user-insights in a rich visual and textual document. This workshop summary can be used to communicate the insights to your management, research, design or development team.
