Dynamic Materials do the Trick in Participatory Business Modeling

Agnese Caglio, Jacob Buur

Research output: Contribution to conference without publisher/journalPaperResearch


In this position paper we suggest that design material with dynamic behaviour is particularly suited to scaffold groups of diverse participants in discussing the ‘if – then’ causalities of business models. Based on video data from a number of innovation project workshops we present a comparison matrix of five different material types for participatory business modeling. The comparison matrix highlights patterns in the use of materials, and how they allow people to participate, negotiate and make meaning.
