LS – Improve Prototyping

What is meant by it?

Improve prototyping is a kind of liberating structure that helps a group of people in learning and improving by the knowledge shared to them by other participants through performance. It will automatically lead them in generating new ideas that will help them in the future to solve several daunting problems. You can get a significant amount of work done playfully through Improve Prototyping.

How is it done?

Open space is required to conduct Improve Prototyping, and you will also need several props for different scenes. Chairs will also be given to the participants to sit. There will be groups of players and observers. You can begin this by explaining the sequence of Improve Prototyping to everyone in 2 minutes. Three minutes will be given to set the stage and describe the scene and roles. The observer group will put together the pieces and explain what they understood within 5 minutes.

What is its purpose?

Improve prototyping is such a liberating structure that will help people to start thinking in a new way and to break a challenge into smaller pieces so that it becomes easy to solve it. It will also enable people to learn from each other.

What are its Tips and Traps?

Make sure to invite people from different fields. Use dramatic lines to engage people so that they can generate new ideas. Try your best to make people leave their old assumptions and start thinking in an unbiased way.
