Lots of classic companies who want to digitize is often setting up an "innovation lab". Labs, hubs and incubators are currently being built in series. Using these vessels, companies of all sizes want to get to grips with digitisation and generate impulses for the future. The theoretical idea makes sense, but the reality is different in many cases. The RAI Lab, Raiffeisen's innovation incubator, has been in existence for 2.5 years. Based on this experience, we work together in an interactive way on how to build a lab and discuss why there is not a suitable form of lab for all companies. We also deal intensively with the questions on how to bring horse power to the ground and how to overcome obstacles and resistances. Together we outline ways to facilitate innovation in your own organization and exchange our experiences.

What’s the most efficient way to find out if your product idea has potential? How do you solve a specific problem, such as a decline in user engagement? This hands-on workshop will teach you an efficient method to quickly develop new products and features, visualise concepts and ideas into prototypes and test your ideas on an early stage. The UX experts from Ginetta will provide insight into the process, based on Google Ventures Design Sprint, and also into a variety of other user-centric methods. They will also share useful tips and explore with you when it pays to conduct a sprint and the benefits of gathering feedback early on in the development process.

The Internet of Things (IoT) opens up unlimited numbers of new applications. What is useful, and how does a project succeed? There will never be a “one size fits all” solution. Let yourself be inspired by three specific customer applications. Together with our customers, we show how these IoT projects came into being and what we can learn from them. They convincingly show that IoT projects do not depend on the size of the company; that strong personal commitment plays a central role in success; and that finding out which partner ecosystems can be useful is just as important to the round table discussion as is a critical look behind the scenes.

Politicians, executives, PR people and journalists share a love for numbers. Because if the numbers support your argument, you must be right. This is true if you know how to play with numbers to trick your audience. Comparability? Only if it helps my argument. Representability? That’s overrated. Correlation? That’s the same as Causality.

Tobias Zehnder has been working with numbers for years. They have been helping him to understand how well his clients’ campaigns actually perform – he’s also pretty savvy when it comes to breaking the spell on number wizards working their magic in marketing, politics and journalism. In this lab he will introduce you to the most common sleights and teach you how to recognize them in Marketing as well as in real life.en.

Details

If a car accident occurs, it must be reported to the insurance company. As an affected person in such a situation, you are in a state of emotional emergency. Confusing questions and unnecessary mandatory information burden the user even more. Instead users should be lead quickly to their goal with a few, clear questions. How can such processes be radically simplified? What questions overwhelm users in such a situation? How can modern technology radically simplify the process?

After a short introduction we work in small groups on improvements, proceed iteratively and finally consolidate the solution. You combine your ideas with those of the other lab participants and work out a solution together, which brings a real added value for the user without burdening him further.

In this lab we show how a process can be radically simplified (abstractable to other processes). With the Design Charrette you learn an efficient, versatile and inexpensive method in which you are inspired by other people and every person has the feeling of being treated and listened to equally.

The only constant of our time is change. This change and its speed pose great challenges for companies, brands, employees and their customers. Requirements are becoming more global, markets more digital. Product cycles faster. At the same time, however, the longing for an analog home is growing. After a constant, an anchor in change.
Studio Riebenbauer and Vitra use examples to show solutions and ways in which companies can create a "home" and identity in a digitized world. And thus to take account of a future trend and to survive in global competition.

The world is in a state of transition, and our society and needs are changing more and more rapidly. This also applies to us at Swiss Post, as well as to our products and services. It pushes us to analyse the status quo, to make the necessary modifications and to continue developing our existing range with new ideas. At the center of our vision is the idea of connecting people through a new platform, wherever they may be.

In our lab, we show you how we are rethinking delivery and logistics, which projects we have already implemented with our partners and how these collaborations came about. And, of course, we want to use the opportunity to start a discussion with you, to find out which ideas you envisage and would like to help us implement in future.

Applications should be “user-friendly” and “easy to use”. Almost every brief includes this requirement. The details of the definition will often be discussed by the project team. It soon becomes clear that “user-friendly” covers several different aspects. These aspects are always individually tailored to the application and its users. How can your team reach a quick decision on a solid definition? Our lab presents Whitney Quesenbery’s “5Es” method. The 5Es (effective, efficient, engaging, error tolerant, easy to learn) describe various dimensions of usability, which will apply differently for each application. This method quickly creates a common ground for both the client and the development team. In the lab, participants will work out weightings for different applications and discuss them as a group.

Details

Speech recognition is one of the most important technologies of the future. As a Swiss company, we have set ourselves the task of designing a language system for Swiss-German, so that the 4.9 million Swiss people can also interact naturally with their devices in the future. In our lab you can expect a "Schwiizerdütsch" speech recognizer directly from development, as well as a water sample from the Swisscom Data Lake (i.e. an insight into our voice data). We explain why the recognition of Swiss German sometimes still makes "Lämpe", where speech recognition will be used in the future, and on which topics the researchers "sich d'Zäh usbysset". In our lab you will also have the opportunity to experience our system interactively, challenge it with your dialect, and use the opportunity to converse more on the topic with Philipp and David, our lab speakers.

It's real: For some years now, we reach the vast majority of our audience via smartphone. If you tell stories that shine on large screens only, you're in big trouble. Six years have passed since the famous New York Times multimedia report "Snowfall", but only very few have succeeded in reproducing big stories perfectly on small screens. At the same time, classic websites have been superseded by Snapchat Discover and Instagram Stories, which are setting the pace today. After a short hype about 360° videos, the first interesting applications in the field of Augmented Reality are now coming up. Together we take a look at the different technologies, analyze strengths and weaknesses and look for an answer to the question of how media can continue to tell big stories – on small screens.

The digital transformation is leading to the redefinition or even dissolution of industry boundaries. Companies are faced with the challenge of constantly adapting their business model to the changing context. Who is adaptable wins. It makes sense to look at nature and its complex systems. Which actors are part of the same ecosystem? How can business models benefit each other? How can one's waste product become another's resource? In an interactive lab, we try out methods to make ecosystems tangible, visible and tangible.
This interactive workshop with emerging design elements not only helps to better understand the economics, opportunities and risks of platforms, but also provides exciting approaches and methods for business model generation.

You come home after a hard day at work and ask yourself: “what did I actually do all day?” Work-life balance sounds like an insult to you and you can’t remember when you last worked undisturbed on a task?

Welcome to our Lab!

On an average workday, we spend 25% of our time searching for information and get interrupted about every 5 minutes. No wonder we stay trapped in the hamster wheel.

To succeed in today’s digitalized world with countless apps designed to grab our attention, a whole new set of skills and approaches is needed. In our Lab, we will educate you on the three biggest challenges that affect your and your team’s productivity. We will equip you with simple productivity strategies that really have an impact and guide you from hamster to creator of your life.

Sounds like a lot. It is. We’re looking forward to be productive with you.

In search for innovation more and more corporates engage with startups, including investments therein. Corporate Venture Capital (CVC) is on the rise globally. 186 new CVC units were formed in 2017 alone. Yet, launching successful CVC activities is not easy and includes many pitfalls.

In this interactive lab we elaborate on the Why and How of Corporate Venture Capital: Why do corporates invest in startups? What are the benefits for corporates and startups? And how to best structure CVC activities?

We will use examples from our experience at Swiss Post and other CVC units to discuss different approaches. Together we will list key success factors as well as typical pitfalls and work on a blue print for successful Corporate Venture Capital activities.

Your data is worth more than you think. In the smart city of the future, every inhabitant will improve the city by means of data: with his own, but not his personal data. But how can you persuade inhabitants to get involved for their city?

We explore a smart city using a fictitious cycle path network which we are developing together in the workshop. We will connect apparently isolated topics, weigh up their effects and finally arrive at the ultimate example of a smart city. Is it an app, is it sensors, or is it something we are not thinking of? Is what is good for the environment bad for security? What will persuade inhabitants to share their data? Is the solution “high-tech” or “low-tech”?

Welcome to the city of the not too distant future. “Wow” factor guaranteed.
