How do we transform our editorial office into the Digital Modern era?

Our client runs an editorial office that produces a traditional newspaper for the archdiocese of Münster. In the light of their audience´s changing perception behaviour as well as the massive change in media technology the client asked for an update on the latest trends in digital developments and advisory on how to transfer insight into these onto their daily practice. Together with the thought leader on future journalism Joachim Frank we prepared, conducted and analysed a one-day workshop with the entire editorial team – to be continued in the near term future.

applied methods:

  • Radical Openness
    How people connect and collaborate is transforming. By shunning old, secretive practices and embracing transparency, smart organisations share intellectual property within themselves and the community. Through this practice they gain speed and interaction productivity that reconnects them to the pace of change happening around them.
  • Futures Thinking
    Futures Thinking offers ways of addressing, even helping to shape, the future; but it is not about gazing into a crystal ball. It illuminates how policy, strategy, and action can promote desirable futures and help prevent those we consider undesirable. It stimulates strategic dialogue, widens our understanding of the possible, strengthens leadership, and informs decision-making.

    Futures Thinking is a method for informed reflection on the major changes that will occur in the next 10, 20, or more years in all areas of social life, including education. Futures Thinking uses a multidisciplinary approach to pierce the veil of received opinion and identify the dynamics creating the future.

    While the future cannot be reliably predicted, we can foresee a range of possible futures and ask which are the most desirable for particular groups and societies. A variety of methods – qualitative, quantitative, normative, and exploratory – help to illuminate the possibilities, outline policy choices, and assess the alternatives.
