In this 2.5-day, high-energy, hands-on workshop, you’ll learn to apply the fundamentals of design thinking in your work by working on a real project in a small team of like-minded executives from different organisations.
Design thinking is an approach to discover new business opportunities and solve complex problems used by many of the world’s top innovators, from P&G to Google and 3M.
From collecting insights to articulating pain points and conducting customer validation — you’ll be learning and bringing back 16 design thinking tools to use with your colleagues or on your own projects.
Learn from our team’s deep and broad experience doing design thinking in action —case studies include developing new approaches to prevent diabetes to redesigning the user experience for family courts and coffee shops.
Before you leave the workshop, you’ll have a plan for bringing design thinking back into your work. We’ll walk you through several case studies and approaches for making design thinking part of business as usual.

A realistic approach
This is a very meaningful programme that allows me to apply design thinking skills to a real world challenge. Programme is organised and executed so well by experienced trainers and the real world application attunes our approach to one that is realistic.
It changed me
I think the workshop sort of push you out of your comfort zone and you have to really go out and speak to people on the street. I sort of change from being afraid of customer feedback to welcoming customer feedback, and that will really help you to create a product or solution customer want and excited about.
New ways of solving problems
I start to see how solving problems can be done better. The workshop opens my mind of thinking better ways to solve problems and I learn new techniques on doing things in a different way.
