Design Thinking Workshops

Design thinking workshops can reveal useful insights into real consumer behaviour to help teams design, prototype and get feedback on groundbreaking ideas.

The design thinking mindset and approach is rooted in empathy – imagining the world from different perspectives, taking a “people first” approach to understand explicit or latent needs. It’s these insights that inspire useful, practical solutions.

Coupled with this is an inherent bias towards action – through learning from others, creative collaboration, rapid experimentation and constant iteration.

Business by design

Three hours is a good length for a design thinking workshop – long enough to explore a topic, generate ideas and agree on a prototyping strategy; short enough to keep the energy high and enable you to get all the day’s other important tasks done too.

However we also recommend full day design thinking workshops if you have time – this enables you to really go deep, plus we have plenty of activities and tricks up our sleeves to keep everyone upbeat and productive.

“James has great integrity, is down to earth and a really nice guy too. He brings a practical and clear approach to creativity tools and techniques, and strips out the mystique and the b*llsh*t which is no small accomplishment.”
