IMPORTANT UPDATE

At the DesignThinkers Academy in Amsterdam we take our social duty very serious when it comes to protecting the health of our valued participants and dear team members. During these past few months, we have also been doing our utmost in adapting to these unpredictable times. In light of recent developments, we have decided to put all courses at our creative Studio in Amsterdam on hold until further notice. Even though, it is still allowed to have physical gatherings in small groups, we still find it important to take responsibility in minimizing the contact moments and traveling moments. We sincerely hope that with this small effort, we will also be able to contribute to the containment of the virus.

If you’ve already registered for one of our live Courses at our Amsterdam Studio, we will be getting in touch with you shortly to provide you with alternative options. In case you have any further questions or would like additional information regarding which Course will be most inspiring and beneficial for you? Reach out to us via e-mail or by telephone (+31 (0)20 471 00 70), our DTA team members are more than happy to assist you.

DESIGN THINKING IS THE GLUE BETWEEN ALL DISCIPLINES

DesignThinkers Academy is one of the leading ‘design driven’ Innovation Agencies facilitating organizations around the world making the transition from being strictly product orientated and sales driven, towards being service orientated and human centered. We are a Global Agency, represented in 25 countries and train, develop and facilitate creative multidisciplinary teams and communities to drive positive change.

Service Design Thinking enables you to develop and deliver innovative ideas, change and solutions to complicated problems. It is an activity-based process with a strong emphasis on teamwork and co-creation.

Our mission is to provide space and time for teams and individuals to be inspired and challenged, to ‘learn-by-doing’ and strengthen their ability for creative problem solving and help organizations build the necessary environment and mind-set

GLOBAL REACH OF DESIGNTHINKERS ACADEMY

OUR NARRATIVE

DesignThinkers Academy provides time and space for teams and individuals to be inspired and challenged. To learn by doing and finally, to strengthen their ability for creative problem solving. The ever changing world around us pressures people and teams in organizations to be more flexible, entrepreneurial and customer centered. While these organizations are pushed to differentiate themselves, DesignThinkers Academy makes it their mission to reach out to these people and help them. In order to maintain and develop these capabilities the environment demands.

DesignThinkers Academy aims to inspire people and teams by organizing thought-provoking events to help organizations build the necessary capabilities. Therefore, we organize events, lectures, trainings and personal coaching programs to reach those goals. These events offer the knowledge and teach you the mindset of Design Thinking. In other words, we aim to create an open network to facilitate and inspire a rich conversation between creative thinkers and doers. We strive for a learning community that has a positive impact on people’s lives, careers and our ever-changing world.

The DT Bootcamp was a real transformation. Highly recommended to anyone who wants to understand what DT really is about.
