It’s one thing to have a good idea and another thing to put that idea into practice. In this session, we think about what to do once a good idea has struck, from the first prototype to keeping your stakeholders on board as you scale up over years.
In this 1-day workshop, we will:
• Practise prototyping designs and pitching so that stakeholders buy into our ideas
• Consider how to keep multiple stakeholders in the loop and engaged over the long run
• Think through how to keep our project going long term
• Explore our responses to failure and risk, where they come from in our lives, and how we can embrace risk, overcome difficulty, and learn from setbacks
