Now that everyone has made it to the lunchbreak, it seems a good time to pause and think about the morning session of day 1. Many attendees arrived well before 9am (and were rewarded by missing the rain that fell later), and were assigned to their teams after a quick review of the Design Thinking challenges and their skills. More details on each team will be posted later, but Fred Verheul, the DT coach for team 5, is already tweeting like crazy about them. Team 8 is composed entirely of SAP employees from different locations, allowing them a great opportunity to share with and learn from each other. Don’t worry, they can’t win the prizes!
Once Uwe Kylau introduced our partners, Blackberry (and their new handsets) and Amazon Web Services (thanks guys!), Hester Hilbrecht got the DT ball rolling. Our 7 teams are working on 4 different challenges, with a medical focus, which is where our medical domain experts came into play for the interview phase. With the teams eager to get the input they need so that their solutions can actually solve the problems at hand, the experts were kept busy and it wasn’t long before lunch was served, including famous Dutch Saucijzenbroodjes!
Here are some photos of the event so far.
