Rehearsing the Future, video

September 11, 2009

The DAIM pilot project on waste is now available in motion picture. The title of the movie is emblematic of our approach to user-driven innovation: it’s all about concrete encounters between participants who collectively articulate attractive visions and iteratively rehearse their futures.

DAIM approach and models

September 4, 2009

Last friday DAIM partners Ergonomidesign, SPIRE, 1508, SWECO and DKDS gathered in Ergonomidesign’s wonderfully home-like offices in Stockholm for the last TOOL seminar. It was a good seminar with a strong sense of working collectively with the challenge of bringing the many diverse experiences of DAIM together into an increasingly coherent approach.

For those of you who couldn’t make it, here is some of the material presented: A DAIM approach and attempts at modeling it without, of course, the valuable discussion of it that followed. The presentation attempts to connect central issues from previous seminars with two concrete model sketches included in the presentation: the iceberg and the helix.

The seminar was also an occasion for wrapping up what we have learned from the Golden Projects. Here you will find the Golden conclusion from the 1508 project on Mobile Public Services.
