Envisioning the System – The Craft of Exploring Problem and Solution Space
Convention Ctr – 204B
Martine Devos, EDS EMEA,
Ralph Hodgson, IBM Consulting Group

System Envisioning is a creative process for establishing the viability of innovative system concepts and technologies. The ability to design depends partly on being able to visualize something internally, in the “mind’s eye.”

This workshop will address such questions as how we communicate these images, and how we share “understanding” and vision. We will explore ways to optimize the intersection of problem space (as conceived by customers) and solution space (opportunities and technological potential). We will produce a “craftsman’s handbook,” a collection of techniques and methods for system envisioning.
