We run it with groups from 6 to 300. Contact us if you have a leadership gathering coming up. We have run such sessions with top organisations in London, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Hamburg, Brussels, Prague, Krakow, Tirana, Singapore, Mumbai, Shanghai.

Design Thinking and Entrepreneurial Skills ( Two days+)

We are all expected to innovate in whatever we do, bring new products, new services, find efficiencies, do more with less, motivate and engage the employees, create excellence in customer service, adopt new ways of working, make good use of technologies in the digital age. The big question is HOW? This two- day hands-on programme will set you to build your muscle in innovation and entrepreneurship. The programme is at the intersection of Design Thinking and Lean, and brings in instruments like Business Model Canvas and Theory of Change.  The programme is accompanied by a 121 mentoring session within 6 months, giving practical assistance in the application of the methods. The programme is delivered in-house, online or as an open workshop in London.

We all have experienced getting excited during a workshop and once we are back to our desks, it is business as usual. That’s why we stopped doing “just workshops”. Following the workshop, you will be part of our virtual programme, which gives you access to tools as you need them and two coaching sessions as you start using the process and tools. We will be there to help you use the new knowledge and skills in your own work context. The programme is delivered in-house, online or as an open workshop in London.
