The Design Thinking Everyday Jumpstart is a 1 week program that prepares you to approach your everyday life, like a Design Thinking ninja—able to solve challenges with ease, rally teams to build engagement, and inspire innovation throughout your organization ... every single day. 

“Design pays. The outperformance of design-led companies suggests that good design continues to be good business.” — McKinsey&Co, 2018 Quarterly Five Fifty Report

What can Design Thinking Everyday jumpstart for you? 

As an organization grows, creative and innovative activities oftentimes shrink in contrast.  However, many of the most innovative companies overcome this challenge by leveraging Design Thinking to build design-led organizations.

Design Thinking Everyday enables you to ...

  • Resolve problems faster and with better results
  • Work better together in teams
  • Increase productivity during meetings
  • Adapt easily to change so you don't get left behind

Equip your teams to innovate smarter, faster and more effectively through design-led practices.

We designed this program especially for super busy types like you. 

It’s a week long program but you spend only 2 days in “class.” 

You’ll start on a Thursday and finish the following Thursday. In the time between classes, you’ll try out the skills from day 1 in your everyday life. When you come back for day 2, you’ll learn to lead groups using those skills. While it’s not homework, participants are expected to participate in practical application assignments in between the two program days. 

Continental breakfast and lunch is provided for in-class days.

Meet Your Design Thinking Everyday Jumpstart Facilitators

The Design Thinking Everyday Jumpstart is led by expert facilitators with rich experience in both teaching and practicing design thinking, so you won't need to worry that you're learning from a novice. Your program instructors are the best of both worlds, they teach what they practice and they practice what they teach—no lengthy lectures or dry presentations here! Your team will stay engaged during both interactive training days and will walk away with skills that can be applied to their own challenges the very same day.
