Adapting and Iterating in the New Workplace: Going Remote in a COVID-19 World

It’s an incredibly difficult time, and everyone is managing the global crisis differently. Some consultants and small businesses have gone into overdrive, relentlessly pitching top ten lists about #remote tips and tricks, others are taking their time to mindfully and carefully figure it out, and some have already closed shop.

At Designing Insights, we feel fortunate to fall in the middle. We do not claim to be experts at 100% remote work, because we have spent the past seven years refining and iterating on our immersive, in-person experiences.

However, given the current reality, we are now developing new programs that will bring our expertise to the remote workplace. Mastering the mechanics and tools of this is the easier part; it’s building the space for creative, supportive, and high-energy work in a remote setting that is more challenging.

Not surprisingly, we are taking a human-centered design approach to exploring this, and we are confident that our expertise in facilitation, collaboration, and creativity will translate to the remote space.

Remote Warm-ups, Icebreakers, and More

We’ve launched a version of our popular Improv Games for Design Sprints cards that are adapted for remote work and virtual teams! You can order a digital PDF here.

We’ve also been running remote workshops on how to apply creative games and warm-ups from improv into remote meetings. Contact us to learn about upcoming dates.
