Design Thinking is the glue between all disciplines

Service Design Thinking enables you to develop and deliver innovative ideas and implement change. It can also empower you and your team to deliver effective 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. We encourage teams to ‘learn-by-doing’ and strengthen their ability for creative problem solving. Lastly, we can also facilitate organizations in building the necessary environment and mindset.

Our narrative

DesignThinkers Academy provides the time and space for teams and individuals to feel inspired and challenged. We strive to enlighten individuals with the learning-by-doing mentality and strengthen their ability for creative problem solving. The ever changing world around us pressures people and teams to be more flexible, entrepreneurial and customer centered. An innovative approach is necessary in order to efficiently maintain and develop these capabilities.

DesignThinkers Academy aims to inspire by organizing thought-provoking events, personal coaching and training programs, helping organizations build the necessary capabilities. We provide the necessary knowledge and successfully teach the mindset of Design Thinking. 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.
