Pop-up Office

All projects belonging to the Cross Innovation Hub are supported by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

Rethinking Structures

Open innovation, co-creation and cultural change – companies and self-employed people from all industries are facing great challenges through the digital transformation. To bolster innovation processes, it is necessary to rethink internal structures and to open up to external sources of knowledge. With the pop-up office, we are creating a unique and experimental format that approaches pressing issues in business on an interdisciplinary level.

Targeted Teams

Our pop-up office will enter the first round in spring 2018: creative minds from design, photography, press and advertising develop new forms of cooperation together with executives, HR managers and innovation managers from companies of various industries and sizes. The teams we put together take an entire working week to reflect on existing structures and develop new approaches.

In the ‘Culture Sprint’

Every day, participants gain new insights into cross-sectoral work, cultural change, agile management approaches, digitization and contemporary office and workplace design. 

This is followed by an intensive practical phase: experienced coaches guide the interdisciplinary teams through a five-part ‘culture sprint’ from defining relevant topics and working out specific issues right through to developing potential solutions. To give shape to their ideas, the teams experiment both with common prototyping tools and with the workspace itself. That means they set up our pop-up office according to their ideas in order to be able to work in it optimally for one week.

Unser Pop-up Office tauchte Anfang April wortwörtlich aus dem Nichts in der Grindelallee 129 auf.
In einem "Deep Dive" identifizierten Freiberufliche und Angestellte gemeinsame Herausforderungen in ihrem Arbeitsalltag.
Mit insgesamt 16 verschiedenen Kreativitätstechniken entwickelten die Teams neue Lösungsansätze.
Um ihren Ideen Gestalt zu geben, experimentierten die Teams u.a. mit flexiblen Sitzmodulen.
Bei der abschließenden Finissage päsentierten die Teilnehmenden die Ergebnisse der Arbeitswoche.
