Event description
We’ll explore The Living Room of the Future and use an activity called Aladdin to imagine inclusive solutions for different stakeholders

About this Event

An ageing population, expectations around social inclusion and the need to mitigate the disbenefits associated with many major projects, rather than simply discount them as ‘outweighed by the benefits’ are all changing our perception of projects and what they can achieve. One of the most significant and most challenging aspects is the role of digital technology and personal data which can help to break down barriers between people of all types and public projects but only if we understand how they change the experience for all.

QUBE@Work

The sessions are designed to encourage you to take away some insight you can use – a technique, an example, a sense of how others do things or simply a confirmation of your own intuitive approach. The sessions will also help you build and extend your professional network as well as develop your skills on collaborating and co-working in a virtual environment.

Audience

QUBE @ Work is open to members of the Major Projects Knowledge Hub and Major Projects Association communities.

Requirements

You’ll need a laptop and a PC, with a set of in-ear headphones and microphone (as you would use for your telephone). Once you have downloaded QUBE https://qube.cc/1-install-qube/ we’ll guide you through the process of learning to work through an avatar (your QUBOT) and you’ll be ready to go.

These regular workshop sessions will provide you with an opportunity to explore and develop personal and organizational approaches to working in major projects. We aim to generate an output from each event that you can take back and share with colleagues. You’ll also have the opportunity to experience (and practise your skills) of working in a virtual environment. Finally, this is an opportunity to meet and work collaboratively with your peers from across other major projects.
