We all love good food! Whether you are a snacky eater or a mega meal muncher, we all crave for a taste sensation and need good food for a healthy body and healthy mind. In addition, food holds the power of bringing people together. Fostering these two aspects, the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia together with the Institute for the Future and the Future Food Institute have jointly created the Food Innovation Program

How differently does this world collaborate?

June 5, 2015
Do people from different continents or other countries collaborate differently? Do Americans collaborate differently than Europeans? We have thought about this question and came up with a claim: There are differences. However, those are minor and are mainly attributable to cultural habits. “In principle we are all the same” – Stuart Samuels (The Value Web) Americans, for instance, are really outgoing and have already integrated a collaborative working style into their daily routine. They know collaborative sessions. However the difficulty of having a successful outcome still remains. The Europeans, we feel, really appreciate a form and a design. They’re really receptive to visual messages. This can also be observed within America although Americans tend to be more functional and do not like to care about the “insignificant”. In Asia you may think that restraint and the hierarchical system prevents participants from a pro-active participation. However, the opposite was the case. When you ask the right questions and when you are open minded and you pay attention you can bring anybody in. No matter which nationality they belong to. “When you ask the right questions and pay attention you can get any collaboration team in. It’s universal” – Jodi Engelberg (The Value Web) The lesson is clear: _Collaborative sessions mostly distinguish on the basis of cultural differneces (but only slightly) _A positive and successful session is always possible no matter what nationality you’re dealing with or where the event is taking place _A facilitator can react on cultural differences by asking the right questions and paying attention. In this way he can positively influence and support the conversation.

How do you explain graphic facilitation?

June 5, 2015
In 2013 we had the pleasure to organise a small training on Graphic Facilitation in Miami for about 30 people. Alicia Bramlett (Art All Along) , Jodi Engelberg, Lucia Fabiani (all members of the The Value Web) and myself got together and designed an easy 4 step workshop, to have people experience and learn about what we do every day: illustrate and facilitate people’s complexity through images and visual maps that become pieces of art. We had an open space and the Moving Walls came in to be a great help to organise the space in a way that everybody had space to practice and the view to listen and learn. We then went through four steps, as follows: Lettering: We usually explore the letters from the very beginning. We practice on writing clean, straight and beautiful letters that have balance and clarity. This helps to understand how to use letters in different sizes and shapes in a very intentional way. At the same time, you can play with letters and have them have crazy shapes, but visual effects. We work a lot on how to combine the two results together and make our communication clear, first of all, to the final user. Illustrations: We always say you don’t need to be a great illustrator or an artist to be a great graphic facilitator. It helps, that’s true. But what really matters is getting the content right, see the links, show people what’s hidden and they don’t immediately see in a conversation. That said, illustrations are important. We then practice a lot on identifying and creating a pictionary, a mental repository of visual elements that will support us when we need to illustrate something. Looking around, reading magazines, copying what we like and practicing with different tools and visuals helps too. Mind maps: Writing and illustrating is not enough, if you don’t focus on how things connect. As a graphic facilitator, our job is to make the invisible visible, to connect the dots for our clients and to help them reach a point of communication that simplifies complexity and shows the details. Mind mapping is an old technique and helps to learn how to structure the backbone of a visualisation, to be then able to take it away and leave the beauty. Start from a central topic and design the branches and sub-branches that connect to it, illustrating a tree of content organised by importance and connections. Then, add illustrations and the game is done. Storytelling: All these pieces together will bring you to a level where you can help to tell a story, create a system of actors, frames, connections and actions. You actors are the protagonists of the story, they are always present but not necessary acting, they set the context in which they operate and interact. The frames help you give an horizon to the story and a context to the actors scenario: where they are and how far they can get. The connections help you map

What are the advantages of collaboration?

June 5, 2015
“When you collaborate, it’s one person and everybody is looking at what you have done and it’s simply not the same – it’s not collective genius but to do it you need designed sessions, a design brings people together” – Stuart Samuels (The Value Web) Collaboration, as Stuart already pointed out, is something like a collective genius – a whole that is better than the sum total of its parts. But how does anything such brilliant emerge? There are a lot of independent benefits resulting from collaboration and once you stop looking at those advantages as individual points you realise how really efficient, helpful and even needed collaboration actually is. 9 benefits of collaboration: _Extension of individual possibilities through shared experience _Higher level of entertainment when working as a team _You don’t need to convince others of your vision because they’re part of it _The intensity multiplies when more than one person is involved _You generate more empathy by trying to understand other visions _Higher level of engagement because you feel ownership of what you’re creating _Debates develop, which helps you to see other viewpoints _More intensive dynamics evolve which in turn support the energy _Ability to think wider and change systems “Each life, each person is here for that very purpose. You’re here to collaborate” – Jayce Lee (The Value Web) “For me collaboration is the main word that defines all of those things where you have a positive outcome of a group of people” – Tom Kehner (The Value Web) However positive the outcome will be when collaborating, collaboration needs organisation. It needs to be designed and people need to be guided. “Because there are a lot of people willing to collaborate but they just don’t knwo how to. It’s a barrier thing.” (Christoph Kellner – The Value Web / Animanova) And that is exactly what facilitators and scribes do – they guide people through a workshop or a collaborative session.

Why you’d better leave those habits behind

June 5, 2015
Sometimes it’s not that easy to leave certain habits behind. However, when thinking critical you often are able to change them in a first step or even drop them off entirely. At this point we would like to give you some advice. Here we explain why you better leave certain habits behind in order to make your next workshop the best you have ever had: _Try not to force or push the natural flow of a workshop Why: Quiet sequences are important in order to reflect _Avoid prejudices against a topic Why: It helps the creative process to be open minded and free from prejudices. By being open you can develop new approaches. _A workshop should never be too serious and it should contain some entertaining elements. Why: Entertaining, funny and loosening elements help the participants to have easier access to hard topics. _Do not expel your collaboration team. You need to involve every participant in a decision process. Why: By being included each and every participant feels ownership and thus will care right from the beginning until the very end. Further advice: _A scribe should never be situated where he/she cannot be seen clearly. Why: When you are able to focus on the scribe, you automatically have better access to her/him – and this way the participants feel involved. _Never place a scribe in a place where the energy cannot flow and equip him/her with enough material of good quality. Why: A scribe should not be responsible for his hardware, such as tools, because he/she needs to have a free mind to think clearly. That’s one of his/her core competences. “As a scribe I need the right tools, to have great markers, to have great pens, a great surface to write on, because my job is listening and i can’t have any distration because my pen isn’t working or the surfaces falling off or sliding around. Having a strong environment and the right tools in my hand which sets my mind free to listen.” – Alicia Bramlett (Art All Along / The Value Web) _Never place the collaboration team cooped up or near technology or catering. Why: Little or a small room with disturbing elements and/or technology prevents an ideal energy flow within the collaboration team and its processes. “I think the space plays a really important role. It needs to be a space that is open enough and invites you to collaborate because there is space. there’s physical space but also a kind of mental space.” – Svenja Rüger (The Value Web)
