I have introduced what Cube School – the agile project management program is all about in terms of benefits and as to how it was felt by its ecosystem. I rewind each week spent during at the Cube, the digital creation centre in Issy-Les-Moulineaux, near Paris, France while doing ‘learning by doing’ activities and projects with the ecosystem.
Week 1 – 3-7 September 2018: Onboarding
The topic was: Digital creativity at the heart of the renewal. It was all about “reinventing our relationship with reality to apprehend the changing world” as Nils Aziosmanoff shared in this interview from 2017.
The format was a blend of many learning by thinking critically and doing together activities.

The approach to making sense together of our changing world
Research, sensemaking and share out loud of findings per small team of three or four peers on an emerging trend daily – from Monday to Friday – in the conference room of the Cube. With Nils Aziosmanoff‘s insights and knowledge, we spot, synthesized and shared out loud insights and foresight on each emerging trend so that we connected better the whole trends to be more aware of their impacts in the society and our world.

“The big challenge is that man will be challenged by machines, so what will be left to humans?” We will not be able to project ourselves until we have a new story. new imaginaries ” Nils Aziosmanoff @SocieteGenerale#SGForum” – @BdGeorges

Seeing the mega shifts and our shifts
This synthesis is from moi but is inspired and nurtured by the work that the collective of 15 smart creatives/learners / agile project managers have done with Nils Aziosmanoff during this first week at the Cube. I have used Google Jamboard.
It is worthwhile to be aware of emerging trends that impact (digital) creativity in our complex and changing world. As I wrote in that blog post:
Which points do you see in a map of emerging technologies?
