The DOathon is an intense three day, standalone training program for budding entrepreneurs. This short program format aims to equip participants with the skills they need to harness diversity within teams and to use co-creation as an effective ideation tool. This DOathon is for those who wish to be at the forefront of tackling one of the most pressing issues facing our society today: how can we create new, value-adding and meaningful work for employees in the age of digitization and within a changing, highly networked work environment?
Our times are marked by constant change. This requires companies large and small to anticipate new developments with the way we work and to act fast to ensure that the Future of Work remains in our hands. In a few years, due to technological progress and developments within major companies, the way we work today will change drastically. It is up to the pioneers within the field to mitigate this change, and to carve new paths for the Future of Work.
One of the keys to success for both intrapreneurs and entrepreneurs is to harness the power of diversity and co-creation. This compact program format is based on the rich experience of the DO School in innovation and co-creation methodology conveys the skills you need to stay ahead.
In this DOathon offered by BMW Group and the DO School, you will join forces with BMW Group employees and other young entrepreneurs as well as a diverse group of expert practitioners from all over the globe to experience how you can utilise diversity and co-creation to create a pioneering solution to the Future of Work. You will add the latest ideation methods to your skillset while working on the real life business case set by BMW Group, empowering you to learn by DOing. This is your chance to collaborate with an international group of ambitious participants who, like you, are looking to drive innovation.
The DOathon is an intense three-day, standalone program for people who act as champions of innovation: for entrepreneurs as well as intrapreneurs.
