My time at
During my time at Hyper Island, some of the most important things I’ve learned are
& User-centered Design
to name a few.
We are encouraged to learn, unlearn, and relearn. It helps to keep our minds open to change and adapt accordingly. We are taught to boost our change readiness and prepare for whatever the marketplace throws at us.
At the core of the Hyper Island methodology is adaption, collaboration, complex problem solving, continuous learning, critical thinking, creativity, decision making, effective leadership, and emotional intelligence
– skills that are relevant in our lives and careers.
We work with real clients and learn to establish communication with them by ourselves, we are responsible for managing our own schedules, deadlines, and apply as we learn.
While working on different projects we usually work in groups of 5 to 7 people, start with a point of departure, and then decide how we are gonna organize ourselves, what tools we were gonna use, set up a schedule, and set what roles we are gonna take individually, etc...
Then we align on the brief we have been given by our client or industry leader and make sure everybody is on the same page, then we set up a meeting with our client to clear any questions we might have.
We use Check-in and Checkouts, Energizers, Feedback sessions order to be as efficient as possible and make the most out of the process.
At the end of each project, we get to present to our solution to the client in front of the class, then we get feedback from the client. After that, we always have a wrap up with our group with more extensive feedback to reflect on what worked, what didn’t, and what could be improved. That also gives you an opportunity into taking different roles and also try different leadership approaches.
