Expeditions with EDF
In our digital learning expeditions (DILEX) we offered day-long inspirational workshops around the topics of digital transformation and cultural change to teams of 20 employees, in 2015 we
welcomed more than 600 collaborators from EDF. NUMA opened up an unprecedented dialogue space between management and other teams of
the company and introduced EDF to the cultural shift taking place in the digital industry. Following the Digital Learning Expeditions we coached 40 teams during an acceleration week (Design Sprint) in 2016 in order to explore subjects that arose during the DILEX.
Workshops with Orange
To achieve cultural transformation, 100 managers from Orange sought training to apply Design Thinking methodologies to their internal organization and management. We designed a program that evolved around a design sprint which took place in 4 sessions over 6
months. Mornings were dedicated to “Inspiration” with masterclasses given by leaders and managers from established companies & startups. In the afternoon our team of mentors supported the
ideation process within small groups.
20 internal initiatives experimented during the time of the program and created a manifesto to federate
Orange managers around a common transformation vision.
