Through Different Eyes - Developing the first "Design Thinking Conference"

Posted on December 13, 2016 at 11:15 0 Comments

Consider this article a first prototype, a pebble I throw into the lake, an MVP, a string of assumption, a first attempt of framing a design challenge. Or just read it and tell me what you think.

Here’s a thought I recently had, which will be important if you want to understand what I’m trying to create. The thought might not make sense to you now, but here it is:

Personas, Journey Mapping & thoughts on implementing Design Thinking

Posted on October 13, 2016 at 22:30 0 Comments

 - I participated in a series of articles on Personas and Customer Journey Mapping published by my good friends at MyCustomer. You’ll find some snippets of my writing, and other authors, in these articles. This is the first article.

Hi Arne,
Good to be part of the community :)
I was sent info about your 3 day workshop in October which looks amazing but I simply can't make it (kids, work etc...) so, wondering if you have any plans for similar workshops in the UK?
Really hope so, Sarah

Ja fijn hoor wanneer een organisatie een professionele fotograaf inhuurt om een profiel foto te maken...

Hallo Arne, zeker een goed idee. Sprak vandaag met Panton, een industrial designers club uit Deventer die alleen maar voor de zorg ontwerpen. Ook bezig met SDT. Ken jij ze?

Vandaag een door Ingeborg ontwikkeld model besproken wat zorginnovaties kan ondersteunen. 

Zodra ik in 020 buurt kom meld ik me voor bijpraat sessie... ;-) 

Anders bij Novio Tech Campus? 

We spreken elkaar!

Hoi Arne,

Vind dit ook echt een super vinding, jullie Design Thinkers creation.

Leuk om er in mee te gaan.

Hoe gaat het met de kleine man en kleine vrouw en jou vrouw. haha

Hoop dat alles goed gaat bij jullie.

Hey Arne - I could have sworn I had registered when this site first launched, but alas, I guess I have too many logins/passwords to keep straight! Site looks great.

All the best
