We utilise co-design to help our customers develop, evolve, and succeed. We coach, guide, and facilitate strategic development, systemic change, as well as product and service development. Our facilitation activities are inspiring and results-oriented.
We build facilitation and co-design on the following principles:
COOPERATION AND SHARING
We invite everyone to join instead of promoting working alone or in silos.
We build common purpose as well as shared understanding and vision.
Our activities promote continuous and shared learning.
OPENNESS AND TRANSPARENCY
We share knowledge and competences for the good of all stakeholders.
MULTIPLE VIEWPOINTS AND TRANSDISCIPLINARITY
We plan and work to enrich the big picture.
APPRECIATION AND DEMOCRACY
Importance lies in what is said, not in who’s speaking.
FOCUS ON USERS
We develop services and products from the user perspective, often including end-users in the process.
HISTORIC, SITUATIONAL AND FUTURES KNOWLEDGE
We guide out customers to plan and make decisions in the here and now as a way of work, not as a clumsy or rigid process.
THINKING ONESELF, ANEW, AND TOGETHER
Together with our customers, we continuously search for alternatives and solutions to improve the customers’ operations.
SELF-ORGANISATION AND GOALS
We help our clients to shape shared goals, clear responsibilities and roles, and to give enough space for people to create an inspired and inspiring atmosphere.
Tasks are prioritised in cooperation.
ENCOURAGEMENT AND INSPIRATION
We support participants with empathy and enthusiasm.
We encourage self, peer, and group assessment to support development activities and personal improvement.
CULTURE OF EXPERIMENTATION
We accept mistakes and incomplete ideas, we concentrate on playfulness and the search for new ideas.
SAGACITY AND SUCCESS
Besides good results, we focus on our customers’ wellbeing and flourishing.
