The development and implementation of a ‘future scenario development-method’, is described in this paper. The scenarios should inspire designers to create products that fit the society 10 to 20 years from now. The future scenario development-method enabled both health care and product design-students to work together at different locations. The method consists of four steps: 1. project demarcation, 2. driver analysis, 3. scenario development, and 4. scenario writing. The applied method appeared helpful in communication between the different disciplines and their mutual understanding during the project.
