design thinking

With Design Thinking (DT) you have the possibility to work agile and user-centered, to shorten long processes and to release hidden potentials in employees and companies and to develop new ones.


Many people believe that this method is only useful for innovation processes. My experience is that it can also be used to implement a corporate strategy, for annual planning or in change management.


What is different about this DT training compared to other providers?

Many DT trainings have a timeframe that I don't find pleasant, like e.g. ideation exercises in 5 minutes per session - no longer... Under time pressure new ideas should be created.

For pedagogical reasons I have distanced myself from this. From my point of view, you can't learn well under pressure. Our motto in all trainings is: fun to learn, to try out, to apply and the right time frame to think ideas to the end.
