Dec 12th 2016 // Agile design development - Our workshops

Agile design development is a streamlined, practical, application-oriented method for innovation. It combines structured iterations with short concept and development phases in teams. The client is always an integral part of the design process, helping to bundle internal and external skills. It starts with creating a vision for the product. And this quickly takes on precise shapes - in models, visualizations and prototypes. The decisive advantage: Improvements can be identified more quickly, making it easier to maintain a sustainable acceleration in product development. This is how products come to life which are fun for the consumer, easy to use, captivate our minds and inspire our hearts.

Our Agile design development process is divided into three levels. On the first level is the BLUEBOX, a free-thinking space, a session room and a meeting space where we hone in on a design using a variety of DesignThinking elements. Our industrial designers are trained observers who can pinpoint a problem or an end-user‘s needs. They put themselves in the user‘s shoes to take a closer look, continually changing their point of view.

On the second level is the CreativeBox, a design center. And on the third level is the CoverBox, where
ideas and designs take form.

In addition, Eckstein Design, Mursch & Knopp and Platodesign were present to provide information about their work and their collaboration with the VDID.
The work of the two bachelor students Thomas Reithmeier (innovative bicycle helmet) and Ferdinand Krämer (emotional and sustainable leather protection plate / mid-string bag), sponsored and exhibited by the VDID, were of great interest. In the course of a reception of the Bavarian state government in the emperor’s residence at the Munich Residenz, discussions were held between business and politics at an evening network event.
