In-House Design Thinking Services

Tailor-made coaching designed around your specific team objectives

Amsterdam

If you are part of a team, or even in charge of one, you need to think about what your team members needs are. What barriers do you need to remove to enable everyone to accelerate? How can you ensure diversity within your team? How can you empower your team to take action?

TAILOR A COURSE

We can offer you tailor-made coaching programs designed around your specific team objectives to guide you through the Design Thinking process.

HOW DO WE WORK?

We are often called in when companies want to kick start creativity in their teams. In workshops, Bootcamps and other types of interactive sessions we learn teams the methodologies to reframe, to ask better questions and collaborate in a more productive and crate way. Rather than devising specific strategies for companies and teams, we educate you to devise those strategies for yourselves.

Innovation is not just about delivering new products and services. It is also about more intangible things, like business processes or company culture change. We feel that managers and teams educated in Design Thinking reflect more on their processes and find better ways to get the job done.

We typically like to create multidisciplinary groups of people and stimulate them to create transformations within the organisation. We focus on stimulating values like empathy, collaboration, experimentation, exploring ambiguity, reflection, a commitment to building on each other’s ideas and the idea of prototyping. You must quickly mock up new ideas and test them in order to get feedback. And that means creating a safe space where people don’t have to worry about being a failure—failure is part of the process. In the end redesigning the way you work will help people do things more efficiently and give them more time to do more fulfilling work.

TO WRAP IT UP

Design Thinking minimizes the uncertainty and risk of innovation by engaging customers or users through a series of prototypes to learn, test and refine concepts. It relies on customer insights gained from real-world experiments, not just historical data or market research. This way of thinking helps these companies improve their success rates and innovation.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us when you have any questions.

Our main objective is to provide you with hands-on tools that you can use immediately the next day in your working environment.

Besides the training program you will be handed out a toolkit, certificate and access to the DT Academy Network virtual environment.

The end result is aimed at a transformation of the participants, knowledge of tools and methods, a deep understanding of the value of design, and professional & personal growth.
