In order to share this ambition with the entire Microsoft Italy population (450 pax.), the Leadership Team decided to organize a country meeting.
The event represented an opportunity to turn the 2020 business challenges in actionable ideas, to let people thinking and reflecting about the 2020 Plan Priorities in a different way.
FORMAT & CONTENTS
We designed a Hackathon, a workshop based on a dynamic of co-design and co-construction, with collaborative and integrated sessions. It had been set up as an environment that enhance the creation of innovative and actionable ideas.
The 450 participants were divided into 5 macro areas, each of them with a specific focus on one of the five levers of the strategic plan 2020.
After some important initial strategic speeches, six teams per macro area were formed, that in parallel worked through several phases, guided by facilitators, Hackathon Angels, and functional graphics that helped the phases of ideation. At the end of the day, the Jury selected and appointed one team per macro area, based on their creative video elevator pitch.
