Introduction To Design Thinking: 90 Mins – 3 Hours
High on interaction and collaboration, delegates will get an understanding of how to apply design thinking in your organisation and deep dive into 1-3 key areas of the design thinking methodology. If you’re looking to build quick skills in empathy, rapid prototyping and iteration, getting curious about the problems you need to solve or taking your creativity and ideation to the next level, this design thinking workshop is a great way to kick off that process.
Tailor-made for a conference or offsite setting, it’s a perfect way to introduce your team to a new way of collaborating and problem solving that delivers tangible results and participants leave with ideas and approaches that can be immediately applied at work.
Design Thinking Immersion (1-2 Days)
These are a great mix of learning, doing and building real, tangible solutions as we work on real problems you want to solve. You will leave with tangible prototypes and a path forward to implement and test these in your organisation.
This Design Thinking course is delivered with a 70:20:10 approach to learning.
- 70% of the learning comes from hands on application (the doing of design thinking)
- 20% of the learning comes from peers and collaboration
- 10% comes from the front of the room
As such, the programs are highly interactive as participants learn by doing, further implementing the mindset, behaviours and methodologies to use a human-centred process to solve problems at work.
Support and regular check-ins are provided post-program to ensure momentum and that solutions are being developed and implemented.
Design Sprint (3-5 Day Intensive And Also Delivered Across Weeks And Longer Time Frames Depending On The Project)
Based on Google Ventures famed Design Sprint Process, teams deep dive into key questions about critical business problems as they go through multiple iterations of problem definition, Ideation, testing with customers and gathering key data over a number of days.
It combines the best of Human Centred Design with multiple forms of engagement including User Journey and Experience Mapping, Sketching and Visual Storytelling, accelerated iteration and user testing that drive towards rapid solutions.
The Sprint Methodology is productivity on steroids where you can get immediate feedback and validation using low and high fidelity prototypes. It takes away the endless rounds of emails, calendar invites and meetings that are a drag on innovation and decision making and literally sprints you towards testing solutions with customers. Importantly, it delivers real world feedback that provides clear information on the next key steps and a clear framework on how far you have to go.
Design Thinking Train The Trainer (2- 4 Days With Follow Up Sessions)
This is about building the skills, behaviours, mindset and methodologies to run Design Thinking workshops throughout your organisation. This Design Thinking course is highly practical and hands-on and you will learn by doing, spending time as both a facilitator and a participant.
Each stage of empathy, define, ideate, prototype and test and the activations to bring these to life are debriefed for learning and insights on how it feels to be in the audience and to facilitate.
You leave with a tried and tested design thinking facilitator’s toolkit, a framework for delivering Design Thinking Workshops from preparation through to post-event follow up and a tailored personal development plan.
Importantly, you will have built your creative confidence so you can coach others in developing theirs, which is essential for developing outstanding solutions with design thinking.
