Even beyond the hype, blockchains are still very promising !
So, despite the crypto crash and the critical colleagues ("it's just a database!") you have a feeling that blockchain does have potential. In this workshop, we focus on what blockchain can do for your business. We also get an idea of what it can't do, very important if you are preparing a business case or raising money for a start-up.
This session is for business and IT people who have a basic understanding of what blockchain is, but want to learn a more structured way of thinking about blockchain projects: how to identify relevant use cases, how to come up with relevant solutions and what steps to take towards a more robust business case.
Who should attend ?
This workshop is aimed at anyone who wants to know more about the potential of blockchain technology, one of the most important innovations since the Internet. Blockchain can disrupt any industry, also your industry. This workshop will be your eye-opener to the business opportunities of blockchains, tokens, ecosystem thinking and decentralisation.
This is not a technical workshop, we don't program and you don't need to bring a laptop, although the presenters can also go into those details if you want to.
What will you do and learn in this session?
This workshop answers these and many other questions:
We present a short, non-technical framework to what is so special about blockchain. What are the conceptual components? Understanding these makes thinking about blockchain solutions more efficient.
We reverse-engineer a few existing projects. What did they try to achieve? What worked and what didn't work? We use a Blockchain Canvas to map and analyse these projects.
Coached by the facilitators you work in groups to explore the opportunities with regards to optimisation of processes. You will be inspired by example use cases from a variety of industries and guided by a Value Mapping canvas. What are the differences in architecture design, governance and business cases.
We expand the scope of the exercise. If a start-up would use blockchain to build new services in your industry, what would they build?
A key aspect in blockchain is collaboration. What are the key conditions for this? How can companies create a flourishing 'commons' and how do we define the governance rules in such an eco-system?
Based on the eco-system model, we take another leap in decentralised thinking. We present how token economy models could re-design organisations and business models and use those insights to explore what that could mean for your business.
What are the questions that need to be answered in order to take your use case a step forward and turn it into a project.
