Are you running a platform business?

Everyone

In this workshop, hosted by In The Pocket's Strategy team, you'll get insights into how your value proposition works in an ecosystem, who the stakeholders are and what they give to whom. We will do this using the value exchange map technique.

Inclusive Design: solve for one, extend to many

Design Leads, Product Managers

Digital exclusion happens when we try to solve a problem using our own biases. To fix this, we need to stop thinking about 'disabilities' as personal attributes or health issues. In this fun and interactive workshop, we start by recognizing the different barriers that people might encounter. Then we'll explore ways to introduce diversity in design thinking. You'll learn that the result of designing for everyone is more than the products we design. The shift in culture and our personal mindset is what makes the real difference.

Grow your digital product

Product & Marketing Managers

It seems like everybody's talking about Growth with a capital 'G'. Well yes, your time is now. Your product already satisfies a portion of the market, but you're looking for more. You've spent a considerate amount of time and efforts at attaining this product-market fit. Now you want to grow your audience and the return on your investments. In this workshop we will show you which levers to pull in order to attain product growth.

Maarten Van de Bossche

AI The Game

Everyone

Discover artificial intelligence use cases and how to implement them in your product, service or organisation by playing AI The Game. Using the principle of design thinking we diverge and come up with a lot of ideas, and then keep the best ideas through convergence. Players are each assigned a role (CTO, CEO, employee...) and must defend their AI application for the board of directors. The cards help come up with a machine learning use cases and check how valuable it is to develop an AI application for a specific problem.
