Executive workshop »future of collaboration«

The executive team uses the approach of user-centered innovation to discuss and develop solutions for better collaboration
How can a group of 50 top executives work together most productively? We were asked to support the process of designing the »future of collaboration« among editors-in-chief of a leading media house with the specific request for concrete outcomes and follow through results.
Approach

During a one-day Executive Workshop, IXDS supported the top management team to reflect on challenges and ideate potential solutions. IXDS helped the group by introducing user-centered-innovation tools and designing seven minimum viable products (MVPs).

Result

As a group, the team developed prototypes for projects to be implemented within 5-6 weeks, serving as a basis for culture change in the collaboration of editors-in chief. Three of the prototypes were presented to the Board of Directors a few weeks later and received investment approval.
