Description

Design Thinking Facilitation: Leverage the Potential of Innovation Teams

This three-day course is for individuals who are interested in bringing Design Thinking into institutions or organizations by facilitating interventions, such as workshops. Participants will learn how to guide teams through the Design Thinking process while navigating any challenges that might arise.


Target Group

This program is for individuals who already have some prior experience in Design Thinking and want to extend their knowledge with a focus on coaching and facilitating teams.

This includes

  • Professionals and consultants from any sector who want to deepen their understanding of Design Thinking.

  • Educators, trainers, and coaches who are interested in expanding their teaching portfolio.

  • Professionals who are interested in managing and facilitating teams.

What will we cover in this workshop?

In this three-day intensive course, you will learn how to manage and guide teams on two different levels, focusing on process and team dynamics.

> Process: You will start with a brief review of the Design Thinking process. You will then practice facilitation by coaching your peers. Once you have completed the coaching, you will receive detailed, individualized feedback from your peers and from expert coaches.

> Team Dynamics: In the second part of the workshop you will gain a better understanding of how team dynamics affects collaborative problem solving. You will acquire strategies to recognize, analyze, and manage team dynamics in a manner that will enhance the overall experience for your team. Your ability to address challenges in this process will increase your confidence as a facilitator.

> Tools: You will familiarize yourself with a basic set of tools used in the Design Thinking process as well as experimenting with the adaptation and creation of new tools.

> Finding your own coaching style: In the final part of the three-day workshop, participants will gain a better understanding of their facilitation style and reflect on which coaching style(s) resonate(s) deeply.

Learning Objectives

  • Confidently guide a team through the different phases of Design Thinking

  • Understand the difference between a process intervention and a team-dynamic intervention and learn to recognize which intervention is most appropriate in a given situation.
