the challenge

The client wanted to increase awareness of digital disruption amongst its European engineering executives. We gathered in Berlin's Rainmaking Loft to meet various start-ups and learn about impacts on team-work, leadership and ways of working and collaboration in a digital era.

the process

After setting the stage, representatives from various startups at the Loft joined the teams of participants. Together we went through the steps of the Design Thinking process to prototype solutions and imagine Airbus Group from the perspective of an imaginary startup competitor. During the workshop, participants had the chance to strengthen their ties with each other so that the dedication to change remained strong once they return to their offices in different countries.

the outcome

Each group pitched a business idea and an example on how to react to the challenge of digital disruption. The sharing round resulted in more conversations on the topic. Also we motivated each other to create a practical action plan as well as how to carry on all the changes back in their home offices.
