As we shared in the previous post, we did a lot of experimenting and horsing tinkering around - with ideas, methods, even ourselves. We learnt a lot from this experience - and it was precisely what we needed to learn to know how we should focus our energies in brand spanking new 2011.
So here's a sneak peak:
- Spark Plug: Our alternative education programme to help youngsters be able to creatively problem-solve - in this case, for human/social problems that they care about. We're gonna be doing some alpha and beta testing - as we go about our iteration and product development to get that elusive (but so within reach!) proof-of-concept for our model. The experience we gain from the (above-mentioned) consulting projects will be key in shaping this.
- Design Thinking consulting: We're building up our DT chops by embarking on consultancy projects with a select few mission-driven organisations (that we think are interesting). The learning we gain from this work will directly shape our Spark Plug curriculum (yes, we're all about the real-world experience).
- Think & Drink: What would we do without our beer-induced spirited conversations! You can look forward to even more informal, interesting, and spontaneous collision of people and ideas from different worlds.
Of course, we'll still be fielding our various speaking engagements, judging panel requests, and interviews (media or otherwise). In addition, expect to hear more on special projects dear to our heart, like RYSEC, Kids Design for Change, and others (you'll hear about it - we'll be makin' some noise right over here!).
