2-Day Design Thinking Facilitation Course April 2019
(English spoken) Learn how to facilitate workshops following the Design Thinking principles for mixed audiences. In this 2-day high energy course for Design Thinking practitioners you learn how to guide people in a Design Thinking session.
So, you have a good understanding of Service Design & Design Thinking, know all the tools and have applied them in practice. You get it. But how to facilitate a Design Thinking workshop for an audience that might not have the same knowledge? How to design a high energy learning flow? What to do with group dynamics? That calls for a different skill set. DesignThinkers Academy can help you out.
Over the last 4 years we have delivered this ‘Learning by Doing’ experience in a 2-day classroom setting followed by a Personal Coaching session for you to learn how to facilitate Design Thinking workshop sessions in your job. The activities for the 2-day classroom training are a balanced mix of theory and practice:
Facility Skill Assessment, Workshop Types, Core Design Thinking Workshop Flow, Problem Statement Definition & Art of Facilitation, Agenda & Workshop Design;
Energy Management, Facilitation Team Management, Facilitating an actual Design Thinking workshop, Feedback on Facilitation Skills.
Facilitation is key in running successful Design Thinking workshop sessions, which are meant to bring together people from diverse backgrounds to work on specific challenges. Creating space and environment where people feel confident and can be creative is the key responsibility for the facilitator.
We strongly believe in ‘Learning by Doing’, so the Facilitation Training will be a high energy and hands-on event. You’ll be challenged to work in small teams working on all the different aspects of facilitating workshops. You will be using Design Thinking tools (like Stakeholder Mapping, Customer Journey Mapping, Prototyping), the focus however will be on your personal facilitation skills of designing and facilitating Design Thinking workshops and not on the tools. To be honest, you know them already. Isn’t it?
