Cycle one: The focus Group 1. Appreciate opportunities with users 2. Design concepts 3. Evaluate concepts 4. Design concepts, part 2 5. Evaluate concept proposals Cycle two: The pre-pilot 1. Design prototypes 2. Evaluate Prototypes Cycle three: The cross border pilot 1. Design final solution 2. Evaluate final solution The Planned Approach-The FormIT Methodology Book- Holst, Marita and Ståhlbröst, Anna
Create a common vision – What is the desirable outcome? Good communication – Common channels Why participating? – How can we keep the users and co-partners and motivate them? What will the users gain? What will the co-partners gain? Stakeholder management A juggling process! Challenges
Knowledge exchange Partners – Co-partners – Users Different perspectives Partners – Co-partners – Users Process Solutions Development End result Further co-operation Partners - Co-partners A Nordic Living Lab community Partners – Co-partners - Users Opportunities
Good planning: is a foundation to a successful project! Good communication: is the key to a successful stakeholder management! Good collaboration: leads to a successful cross border pilot and a desirable pilot outcome! Turn Challenges into Opportunities Partners – Co-partners - Users Important points to remember
Different views from different users! Different views from different co-partners! Different views from different partners! Very valuable Be there – Listen - Act on it Different perspectives?
Lessons learnt captured and documented FormIT, documents and process will be developed throughout the project period. Feedback sessions With partners: Regular face-to-face and over phone/internet sessions. With co-partners: One or two face-to-face sessions in each country. With users:One or two face-to-face sessions in each country. Lessons Learnt
