ST Engineering – Design Thinking Hackathon for Human Centred Technology

ST Engineering + Innosparks – Hackathon
Project Scope

ST Engineering is an integrated engineering organisation with solutions for the aerospace, electronics, land systems and marine sectors. They bring innovation and technology together to create smart engineering solutions for customers in the defence, government, and commercial customers.

Innosparks is an open lab set up by ST Engineering to support innovators in developing ideas into prototypes and finally launched into commercialized products. Innosparks’ Open Lab houses 5 specialist applied engineering labs in one space that is geared towards accelerating technology innovations to solve the challenges of living in urban cities.

Design Sojourn collaborated with Innosparks to run a 2 Day Design Thinking hackathon to help ST Engineering engineers to take a human-centered approach to problem solving with their technology solutions.

ST Engineering + Innosparks – Hackathon

The engineers were grouped into teams and came with challenge statements or projects to work on during the hackathon.  They learned about empathy, conducted field research, applied DT tools such as Personas and Customer Journey Maps.    

After the 2 Day hackathon, the team from Design Sojourn offered the engineer a full week of daily coaching and mentoring to help them refine their prototypes and create a pitch for the final judging and grant application in September 2016.

Status: Completed (March 2019)

Services Delivered: Design Thinking Workshop, Consulting, Coaching and Mentoring.
