Design Thinking Innovation
Two Day Workshop + 2 virtual sessions
Two-thirds of companies now believe complexity is an obstacle to business success and a barrier to growth in business productivity. It is no surprise that 79 percent of executives in the Global Human Capital Trends survey rated design thinking an important or very important issue.
We often think we know our customers well, we have surveys, focus groups and questionnaires, the best desk research there is. These methods are useful but not enough. The best way to test the assumptions we hold about the needs they have, the pain points, the desires they have, the aspirations and goals is by getting out, observing, talking with people, immersing ourselves in their environment, and by doing so creating deep empathy which is essential in transforming the way you create new products, new services and experiences that bring value to the customers, the company and the society at large.
Human centred is not only about customers, it is about your people too, the employees, the stakeholders as there is no question about the need to innovate in organisational design, in learning and development, in managing performance, in creating employee experiences fit for the digital age. The question is HOW? This is where Design Thinking as a mindset and a process for innovation can give you and your teams the methods and tools how to innovate.
Our Programme of JITT( just in time learning) combines a face to face workshop with virtual follow up and coaching. The leaders will learn through experiential methods, how to apply design thinking in their role:

Practice key methods and tools that you can take away and use immediately to address challenges in Productivity, Diversity, Organisational Development, Engagement, Managing performance, Complex collaboration Learning and Development.
Integrate Design Thinking in your work combine it with Agile and Lean.
We all have experienced getting excited during a workshop and once we are back to our desks, it is business as usual. That's why we stopped doing "just workshops". Following the workshop, you will join our virtual programme which gives you access to tools as you need them and 2 coaching session within the first 6 months.
We will be there to help you use the new knowledge and skills in your own work context.
