The Housing Action Lab presents an opportunity for real collaboration to help drive action and ultimately improve the lives of Queenslanders through innovative housing solutions.

Leveraging Business Models Inc.’s multi-party innovation lab framework and design-thinking methodology, the Lab takes participants through a lean and iterative process of rapid prototyping. What might take months to accomplish alone, the Lab accelerates in a matter of weeks.

By working quickly (and out loud) the Lab participants are immersed in a new way of working that helps to embed the mindsets, skill sets and tool sets that underpin multi-party innovation.
