This workshop explores how practitioners and academics of different experience levels approach the prototyping process of transformative PSS solutions.
Kicking-off from selected global sustainability goals, the participants will be tasked to reflect on how to define future PSS solutions following a “10x” innovation approach. The 10x mindset is inspired by Google’s view that true innovation happens when you try to improve something by 10 times rather than by 10%.
In the workshop, teams of participants will move towards the development of an ambitious 'future ideal solution state' by applying a backcasting-forecasting approach to identify the prototype milestones which would be needed to reach such vision. Each milestone will be explained in depth utilizing a 'prototyping canvas' to enable the participants to wrestle with their views on the key drivers behind “successful” prototyping.
The presentation of the results of the workshop will kick-off a group discussion about the use of prototypes for designing radically new PSS, and about the value of prototypes as a means to capture, share, and exchange design experience.
