RIP+MIX workshop: a simple tool to transform thinking (Workshop) by Hazel White & Mike Press – University of Dundee
RIP+MIX is a fast, effective and engaging tool which transforms thinking by encouraging creativity and innovation in designers and non-designers. Participants develop ideas for new services by ‘ripping and mixing’ attributes of ‘pleasurable experiences’ with ‘pain points’ from their own organisations. RIP+MIX can be learned and used to generate ideas for innovative services and service improvements in a fast paced, two-hour workshop. The simple tools enable transformation of thinking at all levels of organisations. The method has been used to help user-experience engineers, nurses, financial analysts, product designers, accountants, hospital consultants, representatives and business start-ups to think creatively. The method can be used by teams or individually.
