Solving complex societal challenges requires a creative, multi-disciplinary method. To serve this purpose, we developed SCREAM; an approach that fosters creativity and research within the agile SCRUM structure. This standard structure is designed around the key processes: Research, Translate and Create. With SCREAM we re-designed the workflow by adding three aspects to support the design process:
- Ideation and planning sessions at the start of the process trigger a team’s creativity (Create).;
- The Design Method Toolkit allows teams to quickly choose effective research methods for design processes (Research).;
- A session halfway through the design process helps teams learn from their own work and define the next steps or reframe goals and questions (Translate).
In addition to the programme, you will participate in multidisciplinary workshops and masterclasses such as learning how to actively develop and test prototypes, or learning about different design methods, including speculative design, life-centered design, and much more.
