Revolutionizing the Working Life

Planning the testing phase at all the workplaces participating in Redesigning 925 project

Work in the office is fragmented and busy. We feel that we don’t get much done. As a result, people are exhausted.

In 2011–12, the Redesigning 925 project had an ambitious goal to redesign the working week at offices. The project was a part of the World Design Capital 2012 Helsinki initiative. Using design thinking as a tool, the project studied nine organizations and interviewed 1500 employees about the way they work at the office. In the end, 150 new ideas were created and prototyped. IBM and the Finnish Government were among the participating work places.

In this seminar, Saku Tuominen, Founder of Redesigning 925 project, is sharing his experience of this intriguing project. He goes through the research findings and describes the three revolutions taking place in the office work.

The seminar focuses on practical findings: How should I schedule my work? What are the three revolutions our work is facing? How to manage oneself better? Come and learn about the fifty ideas for better work!
