SeDiHUB – Exploring Design Thinking in a Conference in Estonia

SeDiHUB – Exploring Design Thinking in a Conference in Estonia

Our SeDiHUB project capped off its work and actions with a final Conference held at the University of Parnu in Estonia. The Conference, whose processes were followed by more than 40 attendees, served as the stage to explore and demonstrate how the Design Thinking methodology can be integrated into the strategic management of micro and family business to help them transform into innovative sustainable enterprises. 

During the Conference, our partners showcased the work of the project, placing a special emphasis on illustrating the way its learning tools can serve as invaluable resources to family and micro-enterprises in creating greater value through service design methodology. Furthermore, our project manager Alexandros Peletie run a practical workshop on Design Thinking presenting the RIP+MIX methodology that facilitates the creative and inventive combination of diverse and, in the face of it incompatible, services and products. Alexandros’ workshop entailed a short introduction followed by group work that asked participants to utilise the information they received to collectively develop an innovative idea for an enterprise. 

The workings of the Conference and the discussions held brought to the fore the key ideas and values that were examined, combined and developed by the SeDiHUB project over the course of its implementation and in its bid to support micro and family businesses to develop sustainable and digitalised services. To that end, it placed a special focus on providing structured guidance on the facets and utilisation of service design methodology and the ways in which it can be integrated into strategic planning and management of enterprises to facilitate their growth and sustainability.
