Under the motto "Let's talk about IT" the first IT Talk 2019 took place on February 27 at the Business + Innovation Center Kaiserslautern on the topic of "Creative Problem Solving with Design Thinking". A total of 60 participants got to know the method in a practical way with their own Design Thinking Challenge.

Materials for the Design Thinking Workshop and innovative teamwork
Timeboxing is an essential element of the creative method

After a brief introduction to the topic the participants developed their own creative concept under the direction of design thinking coach Dr. Julian Gebhardt. The task was to go through the six phases of the Design Thinking process step by step and design the perfect wallet for another participant in a partner exercise. The participants could experience what it feels like to work with Design Thinking and gain their own experience in dealing with the method. After the workshop the participants made use of the opportunity to exchange ideas with the Insiders employees during a get-together.

The IT Talk is a place for networking and communication in the IT sector with which Insiders offers developers and IT enthusiasts from the Kaiserslautern area a platform to inform and exchange information about the latest trends and innovations. The IT Talk thus makes an important contribution to promoting the exchange of information and knowledge on current IT topics. The next IT Talk will take place on May 14, 2019 on the topic "Big Data Protection – The First Year of DSGVO and the Effects on Business with Big Data".
