Competences and Creativity

At the very beginning of 2023, I had the amazing opportunity to travel to visit Le textilelab, in Lyon. Having started my job at Lottozero only 3 months before, it was a great way for me to get new ideas, identify their best practices and bring them back with me.

The main topic of my exchange were:

1 – Focus on the lab : Offers,membership, renting machine, training, production…

Internal organisation (files system management, planification tools…)

Commercial, community routine, Identify user profile & customer journey.

2 – Material Library :

How to set up a material library for our lab. For material produced in the lab, collected materials and digital material.
