think:digital Week 1 : Check-in

Hi everyone, I’m John,

This week we launched a great new initiative called think:digital.  We’re all about opening the society’s eyes to digital.

We’re based at Birmingham City University, at the heart of the knowledge and start-up community in Brum.

In the coming weeks we’ll be exploring the real experiences that our customers and colleagues have day-to-day, and we’ll use this to spot the big opportunities for improvements.

Here’s a link to a really short video with a bit more detail:


This week we used the method “I like, I wish, what if” as a way of giving constructive feed back on work. Why don’t you give it a try when giving or looking for feedback from your team? If it goes well let us know! If it doesn’t work let us know we would like explore why? Click on the picture for a link to a Stanford D-school article on (IL/IW/WI)

    Thanks for hosting me this week and walking me through your progress to date. This is a really exciting time and I commit to getting my team to support you at all times.
    I’d encourage everyone across the society to make contact with the Think:Digital team and understand the opportunities that this forward thinking way of working and delivery will provide to us all! We should all look to adopt the culture that this team is working to.
    Look forward to more updates!
