Virtual Reality: Inside Google’s Innovation Lab



right welcome everybody welcome to creative skills for innovation lab in this lab today we want to tap into your creativity to develop some meaningful solutions to a problem we all care about the problem we want to tackle today is how can we actually reimagine team performance so how might we build the most effective teams and to do that we're going to use three distinct phases the first phase is going to be around knowing the user let's start off with like a really broad question where do you have your best ideas oh man my best idea is probably I mean if I'm just thinking about an idea it would probably be on my bicycle I get to commute to work so in the first stage we're trying to literally go out into the world and talk to people we do that by observing people or by interviewing people after we gave empathy with our users and really try to shift our perspective we move into the 10x thinking phase so in our next phase we're going to do some 10x thinking so really setting our minds to come up with these big bold ideas to do that we actually want to move from no but to yes and instead of destroying ideas in its core by saying no but try to accept ideas by saying yes and try to build on those ideas by saying and people love to stick with their first idea let's put that idea up there but move to the next idea and the next idea and then the next idea so go for quantity instead of quality writing headlines helps you to describe your ideas in six or less words instead of describing all the feature lists and how you want to make money and the business plan around your idea try to keep it short just a quick headline pictures speak more than words so trying to be visual helps you to communicate your idea to others try to defer judgment so don't hold back your ideas because you think they're too crazy share those ideas with each other and try to not judge ideas amongst each other we're looking for these big bold ideas so just beyond crazy that's valueless so let's try to equip ourselves with some post-it notes and some sharpies let's develop at least 40 ideas in the next five minutes in a quick brainstorm as a group you come up with 50 or 60 ideas really quickly and then you give individuals time to elaborate on one or two ideas to really sketch them out and put some more details towards those ideas as soon as we have multiple 10x ideas we actually move towards prototyping great now you had a chance to develop many ideas as a group and you also explored some ideas by sketching them now let's vote on the idea we are most excited about let's take two stickers each and put those down on the ideas you like the most I think voting gives everybody a chance to really have a democratic process around which one if the ideas you actually want to prototype excellent thanks for voting seems like we have two winning ideas the first one is actually something called a confidence mirror so let's explore what that idea is actually about the second one is a board game to develop psychological safety so the next stage we're going to do prototyping prototyping is a great mindset to actually develop our ideas and make them more tangible to see what works and what doesn't work there's actually two ways of prototyping the first one is faking it the second one is actually making it if you want to make it make it cheap or fast so let's start prototyping and get some materials to really see how the board game and the confidence mirror turn out ideally we would actually prototype all of the ideas but we haven't invented the time machine yet so really having a limited amount of time in prototyping helps us to build something quickly to test it out with our users thanks again for checking out the creative skills for Innovation Lab

    This basically outlined the process which is a very common flow of design thinking process. What would have been more helpful—actually going through this process and showing the results of these 3 stages.

    I like the concept of the 360° camera in training, but here I find it distracting. A teacher might find it challenging teaching students who were constantly looking all around. Immersive learning has potential and a place just as a good film maker or teacher shows the audience when to look and when to engage in their own process. I trust we'll find a rhythm, language and structure for 360° view education and the Google Garage is just as good a place as any to explore this.
