From Innovation Train to Loviisa next week

Jul3_Lovisa_2009 029The Helsinki – Oulu –Helsinki 13.1.2010  innovationtrain / innovaatiojuna experience isn’t over yet. We’re returning back to Loviisa January 18, 2010 and there is plenty of work to do.

After the trip, there are hundreds of photographs and videos that have to be analyzed. We learned a lot about open innovation and self organization of events.

A traditional seminar can only provide a fraction of the experience economy this trip provided the participants.

Followers are jumping on the train after the trip to follow the digital footprint. Blogs and feedback powerpoints are covering the experience. OpenJournalism will lead to several printed media articles.

Innovaatiojuna is changing the digital landscape in Finland. We’re only witnessing the very first transformations three days after the journey. There is a lot of information that has to be analyzed and the learning process continues.

Self Organized groups is a big challenge to traditional top-down managed activities. We’ve to tell people that the Father Christmas exist. Many outsiders think that the innovationtrain experience is too good to be true.

Thos who participated know that it was more than real! And it was great fun as well.
