CLASSROOM TRAINING PROGRAMS: 

Design Thinking

The Design Thinking training program is a 2-day deep dive to offer you understanding and context to the process of Design Thinking. It pushes you to empathise before everything else, generate powerful insights into the realities of people you are trying to solve for, their hopes, needs, expectations and aspirations, helping you figure out the best ways to solve those problems. Through use of latest tools and techniques, the Design Thinking program gives you the right platform to start the journey, to apply the learning to the projects.

Emotional Intelligence

A one-day program fully experiential program on Emotional Intelligence to help you understand biases (unconscious and cognitive) that may get in the way of conducting research and discovering real user needs. And learn how to apply Emotional Intelligence to Question better, Listen actively and Observe for nuances

Data Analytics

A one-day program to apply Analytics to user/customer data, to make sense of the variety of inputs collected through empathy research. By applying Analytics to the data, you discover the insights into customer behaviours and actions, their feelings and interests, motivations and concerns, which help you discover the right problems to solve.

Ideation Techniques

Without good Ideation skills, you cannot come up with a diverse range of ideas, that can then lead to great solutions. And often, brainstorming sessions fail due to poor Ideation skills, where we either act critical or feel unsafe to come up with ideas. The 1-day program introduces multiple powerful and fun ideation techniques that can help you open your minds and be creative, and then converge on the best ideas that can be taken forward.

Story Telling

How do you tell the right story in the right way to the right audience for the right outcomes? A key element of the Design Thinking journey is the art of Story-Telling, of user experiences and prototypes. In this program, you learn the key elements of Story-Telling and practice to become good communicators, to improve the outcome of your prototype presentations.
