Atlanta Service Jam: Learning by Doing at InReality
This past weekend, a worldwide community of thinkers, doers and innovators met for a Global Service Jam an international collaboration to design a service in 48 hours. Jams were hosted in more then 120 locations worldwide and over 3000 people participated.
This year, InReality hosted the Atlanta Service Jam for the third time and it was truly special. Yours truly, and our very own Chris Livaudais and Florian Vollmer were there for the teams to facilitate and guide them through the design, prototyping and delivery process.
Every service jam has a theme and this year it was “Grow”. On Friday evening, we started off with an ideation and team formation exercise around this theme, much like we do with our clients when we have multi-stakeholder conversations. We formed initial concepts and on Saturday, the teams were off to the streets talking to potential customers an collecting insights. They spent the afternoon building and showing off their prototypes of services. Finally, on Sunday they refined their concepts and finalized their presentations to be uploaded to the Global Service Jam community, where you can browse all the projects created in 48 hours.
We are always inspired by the creativity of the participants and their willingness to go out of their comfort zones to create something new and valuable to the world. This year was no exception. Here are the final presentations of our teams called Artify and Garden Mates as well as a promo video of the event. Visit the Atlanta Service Jam Facebook page to see the image gallery of the event.
