The Nokia Project: A partnership between Nokia & The University of Kansas

The Nokia Project

    In December 2006, I had the chance to bridge the gap between three powerful players in the university environment when KU’s design department approached me and Professor Rick Musser about developing a long-term, multi-disciplinary project with telecommunications industry leaders Nokia and Cingular (now AT&T) and the KU School of Business’ Entrepreneurship Program. We jumped at the chance to develop these relationships.
    Our students gained valuable experience in multi-pronged project management that crossed both international and intra-university borders. They collectively examined the viability of the high-end Nokia N73 and N93 camera phones from the perspective of multimedia newsroom implementations, design and product viability. Their findings can be found on the blog I developed and maintained for this adventure in international design and business.
