Miriam is a senior consultant and has been with us since we joined a proper company in 2017. She is a trained social anthropologist and often speaks with pride that service design and co-creation is "social anthropology light". She had a heavy professional responsibility in Tinkr especially in method development, the co-creation project and the development of our work towards the humanitarian sector. Miriam is based in Oslo, but does not say no-thanks to projects in warmer areas.
Rune joined the company in 2017, and was actually hired on the day the inquiry came from Rune to Kristian. The reason for this is that he worked on a project basis for Tinkr in the period 2014-2016 via his work in Geelmuyden Kiese. He has found his home in Tinkr and will stay there until he is old and weird and hopefully has got a Doctorate. Rune has worked mostly towards innovation projects for entrepreneurs and small businesses in the cultural and early stages of technology companies and also has a major role in working towards the municipal sector. He has a master's degree in organizational psychology and management, and works with several of our competence programmes where he often works on topics such as innovation management, motivation and sustainability.
