Experimental Space 5.0
By means of digitisation and agile methods, the potentials of collaboration and cooperation can be leveraged
In the project “Experimentierraum 5.0 – Mit Digitalisierung und agilen Methoden die Potenziale von Zusammenarbeit und Kooperation heben” (“Experimental Space 5.0 – Using Digitisation and Agile Methods to Raise the Potential of Collaboration and Cooperation”), which is funded by the Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs as part of the New Quality of Work Initiative (INQA), we investigate the question of how concrete challenges of today, for the participating companies, can be overcome by unfolding collaborative potential. The work is performed in three ways: 1. By means of digital tools, to increase agility and dynamics; 2. By co-creating and developing collective intelligence; 3. By developing an appropriate culture and the right values for “effective collaboration”. From the experiences of the 14 experimental spaces initiated by nextpractice, with different companies and administrations, principles are formulated and a virtual Experimental Space 5.0, which enables the users to deal with the future of leadership, and to work independently and systematically, is developed and put into practice. Through a comprehensive analysis, culture and value interviews in the individual experimental spaces are used to develop a contemporary culture for “good collaboration”.
Three questions to Andreas Greve
How can digitisation improve cooperation between different entities, in order to help exploit synergies? The project “Virtual Experimental Space 5.0” addresses this question. In an interview, project manager Andreas Greve explains the methods used and the additional objectives to be pursued.
