Design Thinking (a.k.a. Human-Centered Design) is a problem-solving methodology that helps teams tackle complex business issues in a more empathetic, innovative and collaborative way. It’s also pretty fun!
Regardless of if we’re in person or virtual, our Design Thinking Foundations training is perfect for teams and organizations who are looking for a flexible structure that leads to more original ideas. Not only will you learn some new skills together (more on that below), but you will also have a fun team-building experience that promotes trying new things and having honest conversations about how to apply the methods back at work.
We’ve brought our foundations courses to teams in a wide range of industries (CPG, financial services, hospitality, and tech, to name a few), roles (HR, sales, product, marketing, and more), and levels (from associates to executives). Quite frankly, we’ve yet to meet a team that hasn’t benefited from leveraging Design Thinking tools and mindsets to be more empathetic, creative, and collaborative.
We’re big fans of learning by doing. Design Thinking Foundations is designed around a training challenge that gives participants hands on experience using the tools in a low-stakes environment (and if you happen to come up with some awesome ideas that you can easily implement, all the better)!
Design Thinking Foundations is a two-day workshop that is currently offered virtually (more on the virtual training experience here), and looks something like this:
Can’t get everyone together for two days? Drop us a note and we can share info about alternative formats.
Our trainings are pretty great on their own, but to enhance the experience we also offer the following add-ons:
*Add-ons require an additional 2-3 weeks’ notice to coordinate. Pricing varies depending on the number of add-ons and volume.
The process that follows will look something like this:
All of the feedback that I’ve received has been extremely positive. Employees have said they absolutely loved the session. The team left with high energy and wanted to continue with it, so they scheduled a follow up last Friday.
I want to let you know that within a week I’ve used the Human-Centered Design approach twice! … Both groups I worked with really enjoyed the process.
I have to tell you guys how reassuring it is knowing that without a doubt, even the biggest skeptic of Design Thinking or our program will come to your course and walk away absolutely loving Design Thinking and so excited and encouraged to take it back to their work.
