BY Dr. Wolf SiegertDATE Friday Last update: 15 July 2019 at 20:21zum Post-Scriptum


Welcome to the sixth session.

Participating in this session is obligatory for all those who want to pass the examination [1].

We have decided to make this Friday the day of our exams instead of Saturday. The advantage is that we can invite other members and students from this school more easily. And that we can profit from the IT-support before we begin the presentations - and from the Cafeteria as well.

To make sure you can use all the infrastructure provided by bbw-Hochschule we we can not stay in Room 627, although this one was specially equipped for the design-thinking methods or work. [2].

This means, we have to change the room and move to room 334 in the third floor.

Some housekeeping-remarks:


 The paper relating to the topic of your presentation has to be finished and delivered in a delay of one week, July 12th. 2019. Only delivering the paper is not sufficient to pass the exam.

 For those students, who have not been (always) present at this class: Here is a summary the lectures that have taken place so far:
 HM 035 Idea Development & "Dinking" (I)
 HM 035 Idea Development & "Dinking" (II)
 HM 035 Idea Development & "Dinking" (III)
 HM 035 Idea Development & "Dinking" (IV)
 HM 035 Idea Development & "Dinking" (V)
And here is the all students’ "reward-page" for tomorrow:

"realz" - tokenization of mobile game assets by Haleh [4]

This project is part of the examination of the course “Design Thinking” at the
BBW University of Applied Sciences in the study program “Management of Creative

Since I got the opportunity to realize a business idea within the gaming industry on condition that a pitch will be delivered in two weeks, this seemed to me an appropriate project to work on within the Design Thinking course.

So far I had no points of contact to this industry, therefore the big challenge will be to gain an overview of the entire industry, especially about mobile gaming and get a precise understanding of the business idea with my partner to be able to place the idea in the correct context in order to create a considering pitch in the end.

By taking the five core elements of „Dinking“ into account, it will create the fundamental framework to approach this project.

Shortage of Drinking Water in (Punjab) India [5] by Satnam Singh [6].

Punjab, an agricultural state of India moreover is also known as the land of five waters, is facing a severe water crisis due to lesser annual rainfall than normal (700 mm) since 1998. Further, Punjab is not getting adequate amount of river water due to political reasons like damming and diversion of river water, water other states and central government. However, the irrigation water demand (4.45 m ham) is significantly more than total irrigation water availability (3.04 m ham). Hence, in most parts of the Punjab state, groundwater is being overexploited for irrigational purpose. Apart from this water scarcity or depletion problem, water quality is also being deteriorated and not suitable for drinking purpose. Basic groundwater parameters such as salinity, electrical conductivity (EC), chloride, and nitrate have surpassed the maximum permissible limit in most of the parts of this state. Even toxic heavy metals [like selenium, uranium and lead] and pesticides have also been reported in groundwater samples of several regions of Punjab. Intake of this heavy metals and pesticides contaminated water is affecting the health of native people. The condition of groundwater depletion and quality deterioration is most severe in Malwa region of Punjab. The ground water table in the past twenty years recorded a dangerous decline from 15– 20 feet to 150–200 feet, in some parts of the state. [...]

"Am I creative?" by Marius [10]

Firstly, it is important to know what "creativity" is in order to understand the field of research. According to scholar articles I found online this however, is not as easy as someone thinks. Creativity doesn’t have a straight forward definition and it important to understand that a appropriate definition has to be found to understand the essentials for my topic.
Furthermore, in order to figure out if I am a creative person, I have to find out what characteristics an "creative" person might have and contrast them with my own. Here, I found a very interesting and thorough book/research "Creativity: The work and lives of 91 eminent people" of Dr. Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi which I will use to discover those traits. He is drawing his results according to hundreds of interviews with exceptional people, from biologists and physicists to politicians and business leaders to poets and artists to explain the creative process.

[1If there is any reason, you can’t make it, do let us know in writing a.s.a.p.

[2But, technically speaking, the IIYAMA-monitor in the room 627 is a 4-k-monitor. And it is not supporting any of our standard laptop graphic-cards and -software. On Friday, June 28, we tested 4 of them and none could deliver any good results.

[3What you see here are just first drafts and ideas and snippets of what is about to come. This is to encourage the others at least to do the first step a.s.a.p.
