Models for Stakeholder Engagement
Western Australia, 2011
Innovative companies and organizations acknowledge the importance of engaging with creativity, not just to generate new products or services but as a way of planning and developing their business ecosystem. Methods such as rapid prototyping and brainstorming encourage internal creativity, although they tend to be diverging ideation tools rather than tools that enable more focused decision making through convergence. The Design Charrette is a tool capable of both. As an inclusive method for accelerated decision-making and generating constructive multi-party outcomes, the approach can be is a very attractive proposition for organizations.
Kwokka has created the Participatory Innovation Charrette (PIC) and Business Model Innovation Charrette (BMIC) as specialized design tools with a view to applying the design charrette approach in more participatory and innovative ways, and across wider fields of operation. Re-thinking the integration of professional design skills with normally unrelated business fields has enabled kwokka to develop more effective modelling of collaborative, innovative and creative processes.
