Innovating our Common Future is the motto of the ISPIM 2021 conference in Berlin. With our Special Interest Group, we expect the worldwide leading innovation professional from research and advanced practice. Together with our colleagues from Borderstep we are hosting this event and contributed Values-Based and Sustainability-Oriented Innovation Management focus theme of the conference.
Changing customer and stakeholder values and normative frameworks such as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by the United Nations create new challenges and opportunities for innovation. We call for demonstrations of innovation approaches and solutions for key societal challenges on local, regional and global levels and how these can create our common innovation future.
Covering trend extrapolation, explorative future scenarios, normative scenarios, and scenario transfer, our new workshop series introduces concepts and methods of corporate foresight and customer foresight.

As part of the GAMIFY consortium, we co-created two innovation games that are now available online (here a short video). The Corporate Sustainability Innovation Game enables participants to turn sustainability challenges at the workplace into seeds for innovation. The Corporate Sustainability Dilemma game helps to raise awareness for issues of corporate sustainability. Feel free to download and try with your team. UXBerlin is one of the associated partners in the European Knowledge Alliance project GAMIFY.
At the Africa-Europe Innovation Partnership (AEIP) we hold a webinar on ‘Sustainable Business Modelling for Cleantech’. Participants will learn to apply sustainable business model design patterns to an innovation challenge or a new business idea in the field of cleantech. Using an online collaboration platform they generate and prioritise ideas, how to advance the business model in a sustainability-oriented manner, and sketch and refine new business models.
Prof. Dr. Florian Lüdeke-Freund and Henning will conduct the session to address the following questions:
• How to capitalise on the green and social values that motivate and guide green start-ups in delivering sustainable innovations?
• How to support and nurture profitable and sustainability-oriented business model innovation in cleantech?
• How to improve the sustainability profile of an existing business idea?
The Africa-Europe Innovation Partnership (AEIP) is organizing a virtual event, under the patronage of the South African Ministry for Science, Technology and Innovation, as part of their annual Science Forum. The AEIP is an initiative of the African Union-European Union High Level Policy Dialogue, with funding from the EC, aiming to support and connect innovation and technology incubators, accelerators and technology transfer actors from both continents. It was launched by the Directorate-General for Research and Innovation of the European Commission in September 2019 in Nairobi (Kenya), to strengthen innovation cooperation between Africa and the EU.
In this webinar in collaboration with CreativeLabs, Henning introduces the values-based innovation management framework and presents unique facilitation methods. Learn how to generate ethnographic customer insights to drive product and service innovation, how to model values-based business and how to review business policies to drive innovation. Each approach is exemplified with selected cases from UXBerlin consulting projects.
We started a new project introducing future scenarios to the Customer Journey team of a large vehicle manufacturer. In the first session we reviewed trend exploration and scenario analysis, and developed a raw scenario for future vehicle services. We will follow up with normative scenarios and scenario management and introduce a forward-looking team to managing their way of dealing with uncertain futures.
