4 h. hands-on workshop
This is an intermediate-to-advanced workshop that contains little exposition and lots of perspiration: you’ll sketch and diagram your way through a real-world case prepped up to challenge and inspire you, teach you how to reframe traditional design requirements for complex problems, work your way through ecosystems, and produce meaningful artifact-level deliverables.
In this half-a-day, hands-on workshop, you’ll learn how to rapidly prototype products and services as part of a complex cross-channel ecosystem. Whether you work with websites, apps, wearables, or ambient devices, the workshop provides you with a system-wide, strategic perspective over the role of actors, tasks, channels, and touchpoints in an ecosystem, and introduces you to methods and techniques to quickly identify how to break down wicked problems and nonlinear set of interrelated activities into a cohesive and design-friendly process: how to map an ecosystem, how to elaborate a consistent information architecture, strategise a pervasive approach to serve as the foundation for successful experiences, and how to identify opportunities and challenges to be turned into design interventions.
This is an intermediate-to-advanced workshop that contains little exposition and lots of perspiration: you’ll sketch and diagram your way through a real-world case prepped up to challenge and inspire you, teach you how to reframe traditional design requirements for complex problems, work your way through ecosystems, and produce meaningful artifact-level deliverables. Take-aways include: an understanding of cross-channel ecosystems and the centrality of actors; methods to quickly identify and map core tasks, touchpoints, seams and channels; a process for transforming system-level information architectures into context- or touchpoint-specific individual artifacts that deliver consistent user experiences. You will also learn how to collect and combine individual actor paths into a coherent ecosystem map, how to turn that map into a design space, and what is the role of channels in making your experiences resilient.
No computers will be harmed in the course of the session: bring your faithful sharpie, we’ll provide markers, paper, bluetack, and all the wall space we need to foster discussion and instigate joy.
