The OMI fellows have officially wrapped Sprint Two, capping off the Summer Lab! Sprint two was structured the same as Sprint One- 6 teams all tasked with tackling the Ideo process in 5 days. The challenge was new, though: This time it’s all about the fans.
We asked teams to first imagine that all the ventures they designed around collecting complete data in Sprint One were successful- meaning every single recording had complete ownership & attribution data. Their Sprint Two ventures should respond to this question: How can complete song data enable an enhanced fan experience?
We found ourselves asking the teams the following questions often: Could they design enhanced experiences for fans who aren’t looking for high engagement interactions? Could they design experiences that would be impossible without this complete data? Could they design a fan experience that could also inspire the artist?
Below’s a quick overview of each venture- follow the link to see their full post.
