Design Thinking   (006)

Cutting edge problem solving strategies for you and your organisation


Designing Strategy into Action: A Masterclass in Design Thinking...from Insights to Innovation.

Overview

In increasingly complex times, innovation and collaboration skills are becoming vital to all types of businesses; and both principles are essential in Design Thinking.

Design thinking brings together what is desirable from a human-centred point of view with what is technologically feasible and economically viable within any organisation or sector. Design Thinking is a contemporary and innovative approach to devising strategy and managing change.

This masterclass will lead you through the design thinking process and explore how human-centred design can help develop innovative solutions, through the use of creative tools to address the complex challenges faced by the public, private, co-operative and mutual, and not-for-profit sectors.

The program is centred on an exclusive "ExperienceInnovation" simulation, which steps participants through the design thinking concepts and process. Together with current Harvard case studies, the Design Thinking masterclass invites participants to explore their own organisational challenges focusing on their “Burning Platforms” and accelerate innovation to cultivate effective solutions.

The presenters on this program are the first in Western Australia to be accredited in this approach, having completed the prestigious “ExperienceInnovation” US Accreditation.

Who Will Benefit

The program is designed for those in senior leadership roles within public and private sector organisations who are involved in the development of policy and strategy. The program will promote Design Thinking as an approach for leaders to become more agile and adaptive to deal with increasing uncertainty, complexity and change.
