The brief
We were a group of fellow senior consultants who wanted to find out how it might be to work on a fictive IoT (Internet of Things) case together. Elaborating if it might be a possibility to sell in consultants as a working group instead of us as individuals. The group consisted of both front-end and back-end programmers, business model oriented people as well as a designer (Margareta) .

Approach
We wanted to see if we could create a business idea together with a physical prototype in just 3 days.

Process
Margareta led the group's designprocess. Starting out with hypothetical value propositions, assumed users and possible values and continuing with mockups and graphical design of an actual website.

Outcome
Together we created  a connected a plant with a corresponding web service where you could monitor you own plants and socialize with other plant owners and their plants.

Learnings
We had a lot of fun doing the business prototype, but we started developing far to early - skipping the user research of the validity of the business idea. Doing user research before prototyping would have helped us a lot.
