Jamming – Turbocharging innovation
Jamming is a high-energy, high-engagement, highly productive innovation technique which is becoming more important in innovation processes. Working to tight or “impossible” deadlines, participants are invited to think with their hands, and decide by building. The outputs of a Jam are not just ideas, but prototypes of services, products or initiatives. And the results are impressive - more than one Jammer has commented,
“I did three weeks’ work in 48 hours - and had a great time.”
The intense, focussed and energetic experience of a Jam can be a key component of an innovation project - whether for a product, process, or even a business plan. Jamming will generate a ton of ways forward and some of them are guaranteed to be “outside the box”. Most importantly, the prototypes created will be robust enough to allow a decision on the next development stage.
A Jam also creates understanding, connections and involvement - Jammers will have a better grip on the issues and context of the project, will build contacts outside their usual team, and will be motivated to support the initiatives which carry forward because they helped create them.
As the co-initiator of three global Jamming events where thousands of people Jam in dozens of locations on six continents, WorkPlayExperience is a world leader in Jamming.
Learned many new things; one being the SPEED how to get things ongoing; ie no endless meetings and think-tanks but just get hands on, do the necessary observation and insights; then start fast prototyping to get things cooking. That was just one thing to learn, and it was also so fun and inspiring, thank you for that! :-)
