DESIGN THINKING: TACKLING COMPLEX BUSINESS PROBLEMS

Have you ever experienced any of these “wicked” problems?

  • Why is it that few, if anyone, is using what was designed and delivered - even though the project was deemed a success?
  • Why are my customers now saying their most important needs weren't met - even though significant time was spent identifying requirements?
  • How do I fund unplanned enhancements that pop-up (even though my project portfolio has been approved for the last year)?
  • How do I ensure a twice failed project will be successfully accomplished the third time around?


In this highly interactive 2-Day journey, two of America’s most sought-after, Kupe Kupersmith and Lori Silverman along with special guest from Australia, Haydn Thomas actively work through each of the phases of design thinking using a real-life scenario. To help bring all these phases to life, we'll have a graphic recorder capturing our event!

No longer is design thinking being applied solely to product design. Companies like Airbnb, P&G, IBM, and others are successfully using it to address complex business challenges. To help you achieve the same outcomes, in this lively, experiential two-day journey, we actively work through and demystify each phase of the design thinking process — and expose three phases that are often overlooked. Using a real-life scenario, you’ll learn proven tools and techniques that not commonly taught to:

  • Dig deep into the customers' mindset
  • Identify the "real" core problem - the one that is most important to act on
  • Ideate creative ways to solve the problem
  • Conduct rapid prototyping and testing


During these two days, you'll see, hear and feel the energy from Kupe, Lori and Haydn and leverage their different perspectives, concepts, and tools through discussions and group collaboration. Put your running shoes on and be ready to go!! Prizes will be awarded for the most creative running shoes.


Don’t miss this opportunity to work through and apply Design Thinking to your next project and get to the next level of innovation that is needed. You’ll walk away with a workbook to apply your knowledge to ability and will allow you to go through these phases with your colleagues.
