On top of our Design Thinking open courses, we also have a highly successful history of delivering bespoke Design Thinking training – both online and in-person. Our bespoke Design Thinking training works directly with companies, providing tailor-made courses and trainings specific for them – to drive innovation from within.

We have worked with a wide range of leading international companies, doing everything from guiding them through the basics of Design Thinking, to training teams in advanced facilitation so that they can then train up their own teams in the future. We have also developed our own innovation coaching and leadership model, co-developed by our consultancy DK&A alongside leading practitioners and academics in the fields of design, leadership and psychology. It has been used by companies including HS2 and Richemont and works to bring out leader in everyone, maximising their potential.

 

Look at the chart below to see the various bespoke trainings that we offer. Every training is adaptable to meet your needs.

On top of these individual bespoke trainings, we also work with companies to develop a full program that provides a complete, holistic Design Thinking journey. This could involve developing the core Design Thinking skills in a team, then developing their facilitation skills, and then training those as internal design thinking trainers, so that companies become independent and can lead Design Thinking from within. Get in touch to hear what kind of program is best suited for your company.

An awesome Design Thinking course. It’s not anything that I’ve experienced before and makes you think in ways you wouldn’t in an office environment. It is also fun and interactive.
