Design Thinking is a process for innovation that is transforming business as we know it.
Design Thinking (also known as human-centred design) allows professionals from every industry to embrace problems and create solutions that are user-centric in design and effective in implementation. It encourages you to dig deeper, ask the difficult questions, and go beyond the obvious to understand the real challenge to be solved. It is an approach that always puts the user at the centre, and uses tactics such as empathy, rapid ideation, low fidelity prototyping and testing to develop and implement ideas that create impact.
It doesn't matter whether you want to develop a new product, service or customer experience, or do something less tangible like improve systems, processes or your workplace culture. If you have problems to solve, then Design Thinking is the process you need.
This One-Day Workshop will provide you with the fundamentals of this incredible process, along with a range of take-away tools for practical implementation. You’ll have the opportunity to apply your learning to real problems, and be guided in each exercise by a world-class expert in human-centred design. By the end of the day, you’ll not only have discovered the What and Why of Design Thinking, you’ll have learnt and actioned the How, ensuring that your experience is both enlightening and constructive.
