DesignThinkers Academy


Important update | September 2020

At DTA Amsterdam we take our social duty very serious when it comes to protecting the health of our valued participants and team members. During these past few months, we have also been doing our utmost in adapting to these unpredictable times.

In the meantime, we are pleased to inform you that we can provide you with two highly effective solutions in order for us to continue stimulating bold innovation:

  • We invite you to join us in our Virtual Studio for our live, interactive, online Design Thinking courses.
  • Or, we hope we will be able to welcome you back to our Studio in Amsterdam where we have ensured to carefully implement all necessary precautions in accordance with the guidelines from our government. This way, we can be sure to continue to inspire our participants thanks to our ‘learning-by-doing’ method.

Have a look at our Course Calendar for the most recent upcoming courses. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to send us an e-mail, 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

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.
