Last week, we facilitated a workshop with 100+ attendees from a large MedTech company, where they constructed several cities from Lego blocks and other materials such as masking tape, water bottles, and whatever else they could find. From these ordinary materials, we ended up with some extremely imaginative cityscapes – and of course it couldn’t have been achieved without adopting an Agile mindset. You’ve no doubt heard the saying ‘Rome wasn't built in a day’. So, how can it even be possible to build a city within 3 hours?
The concept of a “totem” originates from the indigenous North American Ojibwe culture. It could be a spirit being, object, or symbol that serves as an emblem of a group of believers. At why innovation!, we like to use this concept to guide our regular gatherings - as our consultant Pedro Pimentel described, “(it is) to celebrate, to admire, to pray, to evolve!”

UX and Agile approaches involve their own special set of techniques for creating products and experiences, but they do overlap in one key area– creating products that delight and bring value to users.
Unfortunately, trying to accommodate for both approaches results in sometimes unhealthy competition for the key resource of Time - as well as frustration mainly due to common misunderstandings of both practices.
This workshop is aimed at practitioners and leaders in team environments- whether you are a UXers, programmer or project manager, you will learn just how to find the ‘best blend’ of the two approaches, no matter the constraints or type of product you are trying to create.
The session will cover:
This XTRAM workshop will be taught by Daryl Chan and colleagues from why innovation!, a consulting firm that coaches teams and organisations in successfully delivering products in the digital world.
