This is a short preview of Creative Shower's Startup Design Camp, together with Batch8 from Eleven Startup Accelerator. Boy, did we have fun
It's the liveliest time of the quarter again, when Creative Shower gets to work with a batch of passionate startups. This time,in six days.
..and this time not a single .ppt slide was used. Instead, we drew, cut, wrote, and explained on the go. It was the perfect challenge.
And, as we learned, a great way to convey the key theoretical concepts of Design Thinking (and any methodology), is through engaging videos.
Another great way to learn is to actually act it out. Role play proved to be extremely useful in preparing for the Empathy stage.
Of course, we did lots of collaborative visualization - a powerful way to get closer to solving your wicked problem.
Let's not forget the power of people - mentoring, brainstorming, unbiased opinions, or a simple game of massive multiplayer thumb-wrestling.
..and in the end, we were left with tons of valuable learnings, new friendships, a refreshed view, ...and much wider and open mindsets.
