Sign up for our: "An Introduction to Design Thinking Workshop" NOW!
Registration Closes on the 23rd September 2011. Do hurry as spaces are filling up!
It’s official. With the backing of the Employment and Employability Institute (e2i), which focuses on improving skills, productivity and the lives of our workforce in Singapore, we will be running our very cool Introduction to Design Thinking workshop on 29th to 30th of September.
Traditional Design Thinking workshops are often run specific to organizations, or in special organized groups. We wanted our Design Thinking workshop to be open to the masses and to people from all types of industries. We are probably one of the first workshops in Singapore to do so.
Co-facilitated together with Jackson Tan (of :Phunk Studio and Black Design fame), this workshop is perfect for anyone looking to improve their creative thinking skills, as well as learn how design can be used as a problem solving tool or as a methodology for their business success. We have therefore designed this workshop for people with no experience on the topic, but want to learn more about this new business buzzword.
Here are the details of the workshop with our invitation mailer at the end. The invitation has been formatted to fit an A4 page, so please feel free to print and hang it in your space, or better still, email it to a friend.
DESIGN THINKING is a methodology that is fast becoming a mainstay in business strategy all around the world. Centered around creativity, empathy, and putting the user’s needs as the heart of the problem, Design Thinking is seen as an important tool for driving innovation and sustained business growth.
This 2 day workshop intends to give managers, professionals, entrepreneurs, and business leaders an introduction to the process of creative idea generation and a user-centered design approach to problem solving in their day to day job.
Participants can expect to leave with a strong appreciation of the value that creativity and design thinking can bring to their organization.
Facilitated by two industry experts, Brian Ling and Jackson Tan, the workshop will be run with hands on exercises that will help participants better understand the tools and processes used in Design Thinking.
