¡Conoce el nuevo Workshop de Design Thinking gratuito!

Fiware Space ofrece un workshop de ‘Design Thinking’ gratuito a empresas y emprendedores de la provincia de Badajoz.

El centro tecnológico de la Diputación de Badajoz, vinculado al proyecto ‘Badajoz Es Más’, sigue contribuyendo a la creación de un ecosistema innovador en la provincia a través de talleres, formación y mentorización para empresas que buscan crecer a través de la tecnología FIWARE.

El centro tecnológico de la Diputación de Badajoz, FIWARE Space, está organizando un Taller de Desingn Thinking totalmente gratuito y abierto a empresas y emprendedores que quieran aprender o perfeccionar el uso de esta metodología para resolver problemas o retos complejos usando la creatividad y el trabajo en equipo.

Este workshop, que tendrá lugar el viernes 11 de octubre de 9,00 a 14,00 horas, en el Parque Científico y Tecnológico de Extremadura (Avenida de la Investigación) en Badajoz, cuenta con plazas limitadas y desde ya, quienes estén interesados pueden acceder e inscribirse.

¿Qué es ‘Desing Thinking’?

Fácil. Necesitamos un equipo y mucha imaginación. Un reto, un problema, lo descomponemos hasta la mínima expresión, lo fraccionamos y dividimos en todas sus partes para transformar un hecho complejo en sus partes.
Lo analizamos en conjunto. Estudiamos cada una de esas partes. Pensamos, no hay límites, solamente los de nuestra imaginación, y los de nuestra capacidad como equipo de trabajo, así, junto a una serie de herramientas creativas, podremos ajustar nuestras predicciones de cara a ofrecer nuevas soluciones, pura innovación.

El método ‘Design Thinking’ necesita de dos cosas fundamentales: imaginación y empatía. ¿Lo mejor de todo? Que todos disponemos de ellas. Con estas dos herramientas bien engrasadas podemos afrontar casi cualquier reto y aportar soluciones innovadoras que nos permitan plantear un nuevo escenario para dichos problemas y, por lo tanto, nuevos servicios o productos.

Con estos mimbres, y gracias a la dinámica que propone el estudio colaborador ‘Garaje de Ideas’, planteamos un workshop en el que utilizaremos nuestra propia realidad territorial como “sujeto de experimentación”.

Aprenderemos a identificar problemas reales que surgen del día a día en nuestros pueblos y ciudades y de ese modo, plantear nuevas cuestiones que junto a nuestro conocimiento de la realidad, nos permitan contextualizar mucho mejor cada situación, o lo que es lo mismo, tener una perspectiva de 360 grados.

El ‘Design Thinking’ nos exige que seamos curiosos, que nos preguntemos absolutamente todo y que en cierto modo recuperemos la visión de los niños y ese insaciable deseo de mejorar y de aprender.

FIWARE Space ofrece este taller con el único propósito de contribuir a mejorar las herramientas de análisis y trabajo de las empresas y emprendedores de la provincia de Badajoz, algo que forma parte de uno de los principios fundacionales del proyecto ‘Badajoz Es Más’, el de crear un ecosistema innovador del que puedan beneficiarse en un futuro los ciudadanos y ciudadanas de nuestros pueblos y ciudades.

This center is part of a global project called “Badajoz Es Más“, which aims to develop municipalities with a better quality of life through sustainable development. The objective is clear: to turn the province of Badajoz into an Intelligent Territory or a “Smart Province”. In order to achieve this goal, it is a must to involve the local companies, the public administration and the citizens.

FIWARE Space coordinates the activity related to the knowledge, use and possibilities offered by the Provincial Platform for Smart Management of Public Services, which allows the integration of information from different smart services in one place, to facilitate the analysis and management of services that are the responsibility of the Provincial Council of Badajoz. This platform uses the latest technologies promoted by the European Commission about how to integrate near real-time data and how to manage context information.
