What it covers
Cities that want to develop a sustainable future will need to foster collaboration between politics, business, public agencies and residents.
This is the motivating principle for the Bernese Ideation Journey, led this year for the 4th time by the Bernese power and water utility, ewb. Since the beginning of this initiative, Creaholic has been an innovation partner for these cross-organisational team sprints, helping create a temporary work environment that gives structured and goal-oriented guidance for interdisciplinary cooperation.
The focus is on the fundamental challenges of a smart city: What does economically and economically sustainable development look like for Bern? How can the various interested parties work together to shape the future? Where are the synergies, potential collaborations and dependencies? How do we address real needs and provide real answers?
This year, Creaholic provided process experience and methodological competence to support the organisers during the journey design. In addition, each participating team had a pair of Creaholic experts along for the entire process—to guide them through the various steps, help them move from talking to doing, encourage innovative approaches, and visualise the results of their work.
