“Design pays. The outperformance of design-led companies suggests that good design continues to be good business.” — McKinsey&Co, 2018 Quarterly Five Fifty Report
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.
Ever feel like your team struggles to think outside of the box? Do you wish that you could operate like a design-led organization? Or, do you wish innovating and solving problems collaboratively could be both easier and faster—and maybe even a little more fun?

+ Teams looking to work better together, see greater results and find new ways to conduct productive, collaborative meetings

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.
Here's an overview of what the program week looks like:
Thursday, October 4
Get hands-on with design thinking mindsets and skills to solve everyday challenges
Back to work for one week to try out your new skills and techniques through practical assignments
Thursday, October 11

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.
Terri and Pam have helped hundreds of professionals, ranging from staff to senior-level executives, shift their ways of working toward a design thinking approach. Nearly everyone in Indy practicing design thinking and service design has been taught or tutored by the pair.
The Design Thinking Everyday Jumpstart is an intimate program specifically designed to accommodate only 10 participants. This is the first jumpstart of it's kind and may not be held again at this introductory price. So be sure to reserve your spot early!
