Design Thinking Training

Learn from the experts why and how Design Thinking can help you and your company to tackle future challenges.

The world is changing fast

Tomorrow isn’t on a one-year timeline, waiting to be perfectly crafted and unboxed, fully formed. What’s next is now; it’s about living in a state of “Think it. Build it. Ship it. Again.”

You and your team need a new way of doing, a way of working that consistently creates value. We are constantly creating, re-thinking and tinkering. This is where our Design Thinking Training comes in.

 

The training is designed to help you and your company identify, define and address business challenges using hands-on processes and tools.

 

We’ll help you embrace this world of imperfection and constant iteration to find your place in it, setting your vision for a new future and building it.

Who is the training designed for?

The trainings are designed for teams or individual professionals who are facing innovation challenges in their daily life, or who dare to drive innovation in their organisation. The sessions work best in groups of four to twelve.

The Design Thinking experience

Our training is a lot more than just ‘sit down and consume some theory’. It’s more about getting your hands dirty.

The sessions offer a good balance between theoretical and practical input. You’ll try out the theory in hands-on sessions. You’ll get in touch with real users who’ll provide instant and honest feedback on your ideas. You’ll be challenged. That’s how you learn best, right?

 

Our trainings include three main modes: connect, learn and try. You’ll achieve tangible results in response to real-life challenges, establish a creative mindset, and encourage an innovative culture within your team. You’ll discover, explore and share valuable skills outside your expertise through collaborative teamwork − and have fun doing it.
