    Design Thinking Crash Course - An introduction to Design Thinking

    Design Thinking is a creative methodology used as an approach for innovation. It is an iterative process that follows five steps: Empathize, Define, Ideate, Prototype, Test. In this interactive crash course participants will work together on a ‘design challenge’ that takes them through the entire process.

    Building Futures - Looking 10 years ahead

    In today’s VUCA (volatility, uncertainty, complexity, ambiguity) world it is no longer ‘business as usual’. Entrepreneurs require foresight to compete in today’s business environment. In this hands-on course you explore your imagination and learn to use a scenario planning method to build possible and “impossible” futures 10 years out. After building future scenarios, participants then use prototyping methods to help design preferable futures for their business.
