What is design thinking?
Design thinking is a social and collaborative approach to sparking creative and innovative thinking. As way of thinking about problems and solutions it has emerged from the processes that designers have used over the last twenty years.
We will help you walk the squiggly path of design thinking to build your creative thinking and the capacity to drive your ideas forward. To push you past ‘doing’ design thinking, the focus will be placed on building your creative confidence and sense of agency.
As we provide completely bespoke services we will work with you to build a ‘design brief’ before customising our workshops for your context. We will then use this brief to help you form a design team that will be guided through the design thinking process. We carry significant theoretical and practical experience in design thinking and will push you past ‘doing’ design thinking by coaching you in the necessary mindsets and skillsets.
Design thinking for innovation
We believe that design thinking provides balance in the techno-centric view of innovation that dominates many sectors including business and education.
Design thinking provides a framework to help participants work in networked, collaborative and cross-functional ways. These are important skills required for the future of work.
