Explore Future Scenarios with the Impact Lab method (by Monnik)
We are very excited to open our SDS stage to the amazing guys from Monnik - an Amsterdam based strategic think tank and futurology studio (www.monnik.org). Read below what program they have prepared to teach you through hands-on exploration. From Edwin & Christiaan (Monnik founders): In this meetup we will introduce to you a new method we have developed - the Impact Lab. During an Impact Lab, strategic insights are obtained by confronting participants with, and immersing them in, an inspiring, relevant and conceivable future scenario. It is a speculative way of working that helps organizations to strategically position themselves in a changing world. During the meetup, we’ll shortly introduce our practice Monnik, a strategic think tank and futurology studio based in Amsterdam. We will explain the Impact Lab methodology and we’ll dive straight into a condensed version of it. Meaning we’ll immerse you in a future scenario through storytelling and will provide you with an Impact canvas that will guide you through answering what this scenario will mean for the future and for today. After the condensed Impact Lab experience we would like to discuss this format with you, since it is still in development and we hope to learn from your insights in order to improve it. Figuring out what worked and what didn’t. How it could be improved and in what ways it could connected to (your own) existing practices and methods. But also for which particular cases and clients this method would be of interest. Your facilitators: Edwin Gardner & Christiaan Fruneaux of Monnik (www.monnik.org) Agenda: 6:30 – 7:00 Networking and drinks 7:00 – 8:30 Future Scenario program 8:30 – 9:00 Reflection and discussion Hosted at: Remember to Play Strategic Design Consultants http://remembertoplay.co

    Wat we doen

    We are a community of Strategic Design enthusiasts. Our community is an open platform for the exploration and exchange of ideas, concepts, methods and tools related to the practice of Strategic Design. We prefer “learning by doing” and therefore want to avoid the standard “show & tell” format. We aim for hands-on, interactive and co-creative sessions. As a secondary goal, we want to create awareness and therefore strengthen the position of Strategic Designers in today’s business environment.

    Strategic Design is a relatively young term, but not necessarily a young domain. When we speak of “Strategic Design” we align with the explanation provided by the Helsinki Design Lab, which is as follows: “(...) Strategic design applies some of the principles of traditional design to "big picture" systemic challenges like healthcare, education, and climate change. It redefines how problems are approached, identifies opportunities for action, and helps deliver more complete and resilient solutions. Strategic design is about crafting decision-making.”

    We will focus on the following areas:
    - Why is Strategic Design relevant? What is the role of Strategic Design today and in the future? (discussions, panels, movie nights…)
    - How does one practice Strategic Design? What are the processes, methods and tools? (exploration, hands-on, workshops, co-creation sessions…)
    - What are the applications of Strategic Design? (cases, examples, presentations …)

    Strategic Design is a discipline, which leans on design principles and uses design methods and tools to answer questions on a strategic level. It is not a discipline, which is reserved for designers only. Our aim is to grow a cross-disciplinary community, which will represent different points of view, experiences and needs. We would love to see a high diversity of individuals, who are excited to learn and share their thoughts.

    This platform is for and by the community. This means that co-creation is not only encouraged but also expected. This will be visible in the interactive and participatory format of the meetups. Besides that we invite everyone to take the initiative and co-create the content and formats.
