LEARNING BY DOING
We strongly believe in ‘Learning by Doing’, so the DesignThinkers Workshop is a high energy and hands-on event. You’ll be challenged to work in small teams on real cases and learn to work with the Design Thinking tools like Personas, Cultural Probes, Customer Journey Mapping, Value Network Mapping, Prototyping, Business Modeling, Road Mapping and more. Moreover, a focus of the program will be on exploring the question of how to integrate these tools.
This training program is designed to apply Design Thinking in an organisation and how to create a buy-in within the organisation and sponsors. Besides the training program, participants will be handed out a toolkit, certiﬁcate and access to the DesignThinkers Academy Network environment.
YOU WILL PRACTICE THE FOLLOWING TOOLS:
Stakeholder Mapping provides you with an overview of the ‘eco-system’ that you are exploring. Stakeholders are people, teams or organisations that directly or indirectly exchange ‘value’. The exchange of value is used as the basis to explore the underlying services provided by the stakeholders
Value Network Mapping creates insight in the exact values that are being exchanged between stakeholders. Using this tool, you already will get a more detailed insight into the services being provided by the stakeholders
Personas are used as the basis for Customer Journey Mapping. Finding out about the objectives, behaviour, attitudes of people is very important for developing improvements or innovations of the services provided.
Customer Journey Mapping allows us to further step into the customer shoes. It shows us the customer’s perceptions and the larger context in which we play a part at the different stages of their journeys. It lets us be emerged in their world, their reality. Get a deeper insight into customer needs, objectives, experience and desired outcomes. It will answer questions like: What are people really trying to achieve? How are they trying to achieve this? What do they use and in what order? Why do they make a choice? What are they experiencing, feeling, while trying to reach the desired outcome?
A customer journey map is built up layer by layer. We start ‘above water’, with the customer and slowly dive deeper and deeper into the organisational structures and context. The tool can be used with customers or management, employees and other stakeholder.
This qualitative design research tool will provide you with customer insights to improve the customer’s experience. The toolkit will be handed out after the training so you can start applying the tool immediately in your context.
Service Scenarios are used to visualise how a (newly designed) service is being experienced from a customer point of view. Simple visualisation techniques are being introduced.
Prototyping is done to be able to test a service concept in a ‘low tech’ environment with relevant stakeholders. Prototyping can be done by building artefacts from cardboard or paper or by using Lego. Also, role play is a powerful way of prototyping.
All tools will be handed out after the session and are free of use.
