"Co-designing the future of NEP Egypt"

Project Background

GIZ organised a study tour in Berlin and Munich for a group of Egyptian visitors. The research topics for the tour included Social Entrepreneurship, Social Innovation, HR-Start Ups, Impact Investment and Business Model Coaching. During the study tour there were meetings taking place with interesting stakeholders from relevant areas of the research spectrum.

Within this visit SUPERDUPER DESIGN hosted a series of Design Thinking Workshops featuring a co-design setup. The GIZ team was educated in applying different innovative problem-solving methods to the respective organisational challenges. Through immediate interactive application of these methods the team was coached for a user centred approach when tackling future project challenges.

The Workshops

The workshops were planned in close coordination with the GIZ and were featuring three units with one respective topic per workshop-day:

- Input: presentation “Design Thinking methods and agile way of working” Interaction: scoping the status quo of NEP / stakeholder- and context mapping / business model canvas (business model-analysis)

- Mapping and formulation of challenges, definition of objectives as well as debriefing of the study visits and analysis of insights

- Ideation regarding current challenges and reflection of next project steps following relevant criteria as well as discussion of next steps

Project Voices

"Thank you so much for your perfectly coordinated moderation, your flexibility and sensitivity and the cooperation during the workshop! It was really fun for us as well, your methods were fitting and new for the group and thanks to your moderation the NEP-team has come closer together as well and has developed clearer common ideas and solutions ."
