Ask me about workshops

What we do

We create and facilitate workshops about UX, strategy and business. Some of the things you will learn if you enrol in one of our workshops are foresight, innovation, design thinking, problem-solving, product-market fit, testing ideas or critical thinking among others.

Few of the workshops we offer are given in more than one session. We try to make our sessions ludic and fun. At this moment, our workshops are remote, so it takes more effort to involve people, but we like the challenge. Please take a look below for more details.

Workshops

Tester session 22/10/2020

Play with the future

Prepare for the future by playing with it

Intro

Did this pandemic catch you by surprise? How did you react to it? Do you feel prepared for an uncertain future? What do people do to be more prepared for the future? How would a technological change affect my business? Or a social change? Or a policy change? or an environmental change?

Unfortunately, we don't know how what will happen in the future, but we know that the constant is change and changes can be unexpected, sudden and transformative. So how do we train ourselves to be more resilient to those changes?

Why not make uncertainty a game?

What we will do

In this group session, we are going to play a Future Forecasting Game. As Einstein said, "Games are the most elevated form of investigation". Future Forecasting games consist of voluntarily placing obstacles in a plausible future to train your blind spots. Think of a play experience similar to Dungeons and Dragons but for your business.

You and other participants will be presented with different scenarios and situations where you will need to use your imagination and critical thinking to bring solutions to future obstacles.

Some of the things you with shape during the session:
- Your planning, prioritisation, partnership, creativity and adaption skills
- Your understanding of the nature of your tactical and operational reasoning
- Your understanding of your role within your organisation in the context of the scenario
-Your ideas about innovativation, creativity
-Your sense of involvement on changing the future

Ideal for...

People that are looking to seek clarity and react better in unknown, rapid and drastically changing environments by building the creativity, foresight, strategy, mental flexibility muscles.
