Beyond the elephant: how boundary objects helps us see the full picture
There is an 3000 years old story that tells a group of blind men who approach an elephant for the first time. Long story short: it teaches us how looking at things from your own perspective might give you back the wrong picture.
This is what happens when we work in silos: we describe the elephant according to our own perspective.
This is a huge problem, especially when dealing with complex projects that need to balance different expertise like the famous trio Feasibility (Technology), Viability (Business) and Desirability (Design).
In this workshop, starting from a concrete project, we will map it out in its different layers and we will rebuild it, enhancing the relation between its parts so that they will contribute to the success of the end result.
This approach radically changes the classic relationship between stakeholders, allowing everyone involved to bring to the table their point of view at the same time, visualizing immediately the impacts that certain choices have on other levels.
