At 31st May SwissRe’s Specialty unit hold an ideation workshop to sharpen its digital strategy for the core business supported by databooster. Data-driven underwriting and automation were the key elements of the lively discussions. The participants represented business and technology units to bring views together and ensure a 360° perspective for the digital strategy. Jürg Meierhofer (ZHAW) and Markus Konz (SwissRe) moderated the workshop and guided the participants through the design thinking framework which enabled the team to stay focused and come up with a very concrete picture of the requirements to transfer into a digital future.
The workshop was a full success and the outcome got turned into concrete action plan for the coming 3 years. It was great to see how a well-orchestrated design thinking workshop with highly motivated and competent experts could deliver tangible results for a deeply informed strategy and roadmap in only half a day.
