In this highly interactive workshop you will learn how to effectively shape and visualize new projects with thinking tools that combine skills from project management with "design thinking", “improvisation" and "play". And that can work for any project approach, agile as well as traditional.
DESCRIPCIÓN DEL CURSO
Projects are temporary sidesteps from daily obligations, routines, and structures. Projects as well as games ask for a special arrangement of time, space, participants, and rules. This special arrangement requires the commitment of all participants.
The main challenge is that projects bring people together who typically don't work together.
Consequently, the individual views concerning a project are very different resulting from professional and cultural perspectives as well as divergent states of information.
Before you kick-off an ambitious new venture, you usually want to think through your idea and map out related constraints and impacts. This stage is called “Project Design”. By means of a set of thinking tools, you can develop and visualize a holistic picture of the project. This result is helpful to gain confidence, supporters and sponsors, and eventually make your project thrive.
- PROJECT THINKING - Understand the nature of a project
- PROJECT CANVAS - Design a project on one page
- VISUAL TOOLS – Shape your project to get moving
TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN?
- Anyone that works with projects, being project professionals as well as absolute beginners.
- If you are new to projects, you will learn simple yet powerful techniques for setting up a new project.
- As a project professional, you can acquire new and innovative ideas and benefit from cross-disciplinary wisdom.
- In any case, you will learn to systematically shape and visualise projects – demystified and buzzword-free.
This session is shaped as a hands on workshop. We will be using visual and intuitive tools that are self explanatory so it is all about getting your hands dirty and having a project design experience that you can apply immediately for your own projects.
