DESIGN THINKING FOR DECISION MAKERS


Overview

Design Thinking for Decision Makers is curated for leaders to become enablers of creativity within their organisation. In comparison to Getting Started: Design Thinking, this programme emphasises facilitation, drawing inspiration from case studies, and leveraging the collective thoughts of other leaders to co-create solutions. The idea is not so much that participants become Design Thinking process experts, as it is to use the framework to spark healthier team dynamics and effective decision making. .


Who is it for?

  • Leaders who want to make the shift towards user-centric/empathetic leadership but don’t know where to start.
  • Leaders who are looking for a way to diagnose organisational struggles and to take meaningful action accordingly.
  • Organisations wanting to learn how to boost a culture of learning from failures in the workplace.
