Leading and solving your business challenges requires an ability to be curious and innovative in order to generate meaningful solutions for you, your stakeholders and customers.

Understanding design thinking, with its systemic approach to innovation, helps you and your team generate new ideas to solve your ‘wicked’ problems – those curly problems that are complex or multi-faceted. Developing your innovation mindset helps to jumpstart new and inspired ideas, to create new and better business outcomes

The workshop will introduce you to cutting edge design thinking research and uses a highly interactive and immersive innovation experience that will broaden your mind and insights. Through practical exercises, you will learn some design discovery tools to solve some wicked business problems so you can apply these straight away to your business context. Some examples could include business transformation from the effects of Covid-19, developing a people strategy to improve employee engagement, developing new products or moving into new markets, turning round a toxic organisational culture, or improving the employment value proposition

As a result of learning to develop an innovation mindset and how to effectively gather and present insights, you can expect to be able to foster more curiosity and create better engagement with your team and stakeholders to improve your team’s ability to thrive in an ever-changing business landscape.
