Identifying digital service opportunities in multi-tenant office buildings

Life@Work is a digital platform for the CRE (Comercial Real Estate) industry. The platform is both an operating system that connects the users of the buildings with all the technical infrastructure in the buildings in addition to providing all the services they need to be effective at work. The aim is to create a seamless experience. The platform also aims to reduce space waste and to utilize the underlying asset capacity better. For the maintenance staff the Life@Work platform helps to connect them to the end user and provide better and more efficient services. The platform will also function as a marketplace where the users can buy or rent items they need during the day.

Join Veni and Life@Work for a workshop and experience how digital services are created using Design Thinking and Double-diamond methodology.

This session is for anyone that work in an office building, for tenants’ representatives and for building owners.


  • Introduction
  • Ice breaker
  • Problem definitions
  • Ideas

You will learn the basics of efficient ideation and innovation in practice.

Work with ideas that have the potential to improve your life at work.

Reduce risk in decision-making

Most ideas we come up with are based on gut feelings, limited experiences and understanding of the problem at hand.

Become mindful in your decision-making processes:

  • What are the actual problems needing a solution?
  • What are the values to be created for business and people?

Avoid situations where your investigations merely confirm what you have already decided.

Explore by problematization and empathy to avoid ideas and solutions based on preconceived notions.
