  • Business origami is a service design activity where stakeholders build a physical representation of a system and then prototype future or alternative states.
  • Paper tokens represent actors, artifacts, environments, and technologies on a horizontal whiteboard “stage” where interactions play out to tell a story.
  • Lines and arrows labeled on the whiteboard represent the interactions between tokens, articulating what value people get out of the exchange.
