The magic of understanding
Limited Capacity filling up

Do language skills reduce our ability to understand? How important is language for understanding? How can international companies enhance a culture of understanding? Bärbel Boy gives her audience game changing insights and practises exercises with some who want to experience the magic of understanding. In the future, understanding competence will be the mostly demanded competence. And the accompanying attitude will probably take precedence over flawless, polished mother-tongue text and other competencies of the old world.

Eigentum neu denken - New work braucht new Ownership
Unternehmen als positive Kraft in der Gesellschaft?Start-up Finanzierung ohne normalen Exit? Unsere Session bietet den Teilnehmern die Möglichkeit Unternehmenseigentum neu zu denken und konkrete Möglichkeiten kennenzulernen, wie sich Sinnorientierung und Unabhängigkeit in der DNA eines Unternehmens - dem Eigentum - verankern lässt. Wir präsentieren Verantwortungseigentum und warum Start-ups wie Ecosia, Einhorn und soulbottles sich für diesen Weg entschieden haben. Dazu berichten wir, wie eine Finanzierung aussehen kann, bei der die Unabhängigkeit des Unternehmens gewahrt bleibt.
- Wir werden unter anderem folgende Fragen klären:
- Wie lassen sich Eigentumsstrukturen gestalten, die Sinn vor Shareholder Value-Maximierung stellen und dem Unternehmen ermöglichen langfristig unabhängig und selbstbestimmt zu bleiben?
- Wie kann Verantwortungseigentum gestaltet werden?
- Welche verschiedenen Modelle gibt es für “ein sich “selbst gehörendes Unternehmen”? Welche Unternehmen haben es wie umgesetzt?
- Was ist die Motivation der Eigentümer und wie wirkt sich Verantwortungseigentum auf Mitarbeiter, Kunden und Gesellschaft aus?
- Wieso sollte ich als Start Up Gründer über alternatives Eigentum nachdenken und wie sieht gesundes Kapital aus?
- Und vor allem Warum braucht es “new ownership to unfuck our economy?”

It's all about the mindset - how to foster an innovation culture
"It is not about innovations, it is about innovators!"

Driven by exponential technological & digital growth, exponential decreases of natural resources, and social-and organizational shifts, our world is becoming more complex than it has ever been. Today, in business and society, the strength of these forces of change is felt more than ever before. We all need to re-learn how to navigate. We believe that the only real meaningful innovation that is needed in these times is the innovation of culture. As long as people don’t show an attitude to innovate your organization can spend unlimited budgets on innovation projects but won’t succeed in the long run.
During the session, we want to give you an outlook on how you can develop a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship within your organization: a culture of collaboration, customer focus, courage, optimism, empathy and mindfulness. A culture that is willing and able to deal with challenges of today.
A culture that everyone feels valued.

Can you really manage NEW WORK? This trojan horse that might challenge your core values!
About ten years ago the coworking movement was emerging in Europe. Its initiators were mostly people from the open source/open design/open culture/open everything communities. It was in times of a global financial crisis that young graduates and creative industry freelancers set the ground for a new way of working in Europe, and helped strengthen this global.
The utopia was that one day talents would recruit corporations they want to work for and not vice-versa. The utopia was that one day people would be able to choose when and form where the work. Most notable, the utopia was that one day people will ask for and co-create the reason why they work. The utopia turned into reality for many people.
Today some corporations, banks and governments hire us, the generation Y pioneers who kicked off this movement, to show them how to change their organizational culture. Most of them transform their offices into corporate-coworking spaces or workshop playgrounds, do some workshops and call it new work.
When you get inspired by a movement that emerged from values like sharism, openness collaboration, community and sustainability, then picking only the low hanging fruits (i.e. setting up a workshop room) does not prevent those values to come along and invade your organization from the inside. The taste of the fruits will still be revolutionary.
These values question power structures and the way organizational work has been managed since the third industrial revolution. If the manager's task is no longer to organize resources and optimize processes towards profit maximization, then..what is their role? If sticks and carrots, divide and conquer and similar strategies don’t work anymore…what are the new strategies? If a MBA degree continues to be the entry ticket to the C-Suite, then what should be taught in MBAs? (How) can managers successfully manage tomorrows organisations?

This session will sketch out the sequence of events from the past 10 years from the perspective of a coworking and industry insider. We will discuss possible paths for the next 10 years, while taking the current crisis and the much younger movement behind it into consideration.

UX@UXMA – How to develop successful products & services with your client
Make Love – again and again and again

Die Arbeit für und mit unsere(n) Kunden ist oftmals geprägt von der Aufgabe unterschiedlichen Stakeholdern und ihren Wünschen zu entsprechen. Nicht selten passen die gestellten Anforderungen wenig bis gar nicht zum Bedarf des Nutzers/Endverbrauchers - ganz gleich ob Produkt, Software oder Service. Wir möchten Euch einen Einblick geben, wie wir gemeinsam mit unseren Kunden ein Umdenken etabliert haben, das dem Prinzip folgt: weg vom Nutzungsexperten hin zum Nutzer und seinem Bedarf in schnellen, kleinen Schritten.

The presentation is given in German.

Wireframing & Paper Prototyping
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

In meinem Workshop zum Thema "Wireframing & Paper Prototyping" zeige ich, wie Ideen mithilfe von Wireframes schnell zu Papier gebracht, kommuniziert und gemeinsam mit deinem Team iteriert werden können.

Wir beginnen den 45-minütigen Workshop mit einer kurzen theoretischen Einführung in das Thema und erklären, warum Stift & Papier manchmal die geeigneteren "Tools" sind.

Anschließend werden wir in kleinen Gruppen einen mehrstufigen Wireframe im Rahmen eines Beispielprojekts erstellen. Aus diesem wird anschließend ein Prototyp konzipiert, mit dem der User-Flow und die Interaktion mit dem Produkt getestet werden können.
