In our current and turbulent times, it is clear that some sort of organisational agility, in which-ever way achieved, is necessary to survive and thrive as an organisation. The question is how to achieve such manoeuvrability. We propose the use of design (thinking), with a focus on prototyping to iteratively develop greater organisational agility. Based on literature research into the circumstance that drive change, design, prototyping and a number of organisations that seem to have incorporated the right tactics, as well as observations made at a change-programme for a large Dutch corporate, we have developed a model to guide this process. The model proposes that an organisation should focus on developing a shared sense of purpose, to guide all its undertakings. Afterwards, employees should collaborate on iteratively creating the right (digital & physical) environments, culture and personal grounding for them and the organisation, to be able to achieve this purpose. Based on certain (dynamic) criteria and these various domains, personal responsibilities (action agendas) may constantly evolve and keep the organisation agile. This paper explains the reasoning behind the model and calls for further experimentation to take place to verify its effectiveness. LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/christine-de-lille-8039372/

internet of things and open data
Emerging pervasive technologies such as the Internet of Things and Open Data will have severe impact on the experience, interactions and wellbeing of citizens in future smart cities. Local governments are concerned how to engage and embed citizens in the process of smart city development because without them it is difficult for governments and industrial technology providers to understand what future city is desired. We explore how prototyping methods can be used in a multi-helix approach towards a participatory domain in which multiple stakeholders collaboratively envision a desired future smart city. We adopted the different qualities of generative sessions, hackathons and design jams in our method of participatory prototyping for smart cities. Results show that participants appreciate this setting for exploration, experimentation, and making, in diverse teams with members from industry, government, university, and citizens. We will discuss issues for improvement of participatory prototyping to make it more robust for use in urban development processes.

This article is devoted to the laboratory technology aspects of high areal capacity electrode (more than 5 mAh cm−2) fabrication using carbon nanotubes (CNTs) as conductive additives and LiFePO4 as an active material. The influence of electrode slurry rheological properties and electrode composition on its areal (mAh cm−2), volumetric (mAh cm−3), and gravimetric (mAh g−1) capacity, and C‐rate performance has been studied. Using the small‐angle neutron scattering technique, it is shown that the CNT network embedded in the electrode layer provides greater wettability by an electrolyte compared with carbon black used as conductive additive. The practical applicability of the considered electrode technology is approved on a pouch cell prototype with a capacity of approximately 1.9 Ah and specific energy density of 150 Wh kg (cell)−1/295 Wh L (cell)−1.
