Co-creating knowledge: Improving designers’ facilitation skills through play and practice
Explore the philosophy and science of learning to become a better workshop facilitator, increase psychological safety for participants and improve collaboration across diverse teams.
Futures Thinking is an evolving practice used to look ahead to understand future market conditions so that you can prepare for opportunities or threats. However, getting started with Futures or innovation processes can be difficult. How might we make it easier and more practical to execute these engagements?
Half-day workshops (4 hours)
Accelerate impact: How to align design, data, and business to build products people actually use.
How do you figure out what is just enough data to be helpful to people and kick-start collaboration with data teams? In this session, we’ll answer these questions through hands-on activities and use cases you can add to your own design toolkit.
Design your own research methods for a truly diverse audience
An innovative board game we will play together that will encourage people to think about research in its entirety and focus on inclusion at every single step of the way.
Future-proof your design with anticipatory thinking
Are you challenged with decision-making on novel design ideas in a connected, uncertain, intertwined and multifaceted reality? In such scenario, we need a compass to support the creation of a new narrative toward a regenerative future, inform operations and alternative paths to follow, maximize inclusion of different voices and stakeholder alignment on possible outcomes.
Join us in learning how to apply the Innovation System Roadmap, a cutting-edge tool for strategic decision-making on new value propositions. Embrace a future-oriented attitude to reframe the thinking and rationale from which you observe obstacles and opportunities.
Rethinking design metrics - a holistic approach to measure impact
Effective use of metrics is an important and still underutilized way to elevate and clarify the role and ambitions of design. If we want our work to make a difference, we need to make its impact on user experiences, business success and the environment tangible in a nuanced way. In our workshop, we will show how to set up and maintain a system of metrics (key indicators) in different areas based on qualitative and quantitative data.
Speculating Voice Assistant Futures
Let's (re)define our future interactions with these so-called intelligent voice assistants in a speculative design workshop by exploring the issues of trust and confidence.
We Should All Become Collaboration Designers
Good collaboration does not come naturally. It must be taught — through workflows and guided methods developed from human-centered design, Agile and Lean. In this workshop, IxDA attendees will learn how to adopt new skills of collaborative intelligence (CI) to create engaging work experiences and connect teams for the new era of work.
Your suspicions are correct! Most business strategy sucks — and your business peers know it, but will never admit it because they don’t know how to do better. This workshop will explain how to perform a better strategy, improve your solutions, and maybe even get into the room where the big decisions are made.
Designed to persuade: How to elicit desired behavior
In today’s user-centric world it is crucial for designers to understand the users’ needs to be able to alter their behaviour to a preferred stage. Based upon psychological and social theories, persuasive design is an area of design practice, which tries to trigger human behaviour through specific design characteristics.
Inclusive Design as a path to resiliency and growth
Inclusive design aims to intentionally build products and experiences that serve the full range and diversity of human experiences such as ability, age, culture, identity, and language. In this interactive workshop, you’ll discover how inclusive design must be both human-centered and a strategic driver for resiliency and growth.
