Vancouver Marketing Week: Design Thinking Day
Fri, 7 April 2017, 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM PDT
Join Domain7 for a one-day design thinking training workshop.
What is design thinking?
Design thinking is a proven method of creative problem-solving and innovation. Consider it a workflow, a toolkit, to help you approach unsolved problems through a defined methodology, rather than relying on "inspiration" to strike at random. It also happens to be one of Domain7's areas of expertise. Our design thinking workshop offers you cohort-based, in-person training right here in Vancouver.
What does design thinking help us do?
We've seen that when well-implemented design thinking (sometimes called human-centered design) can be used to:
- Pursue innovation: Create entirely new approaches to products, services, campaigns, experiences and strategies, that can change the game for organizations
- Gain clarity: Break us out of our typical corporate assumptions and individual biases to see solution spaces more clearly
- Focus on the user: Reorient projects and teams towards true user needs, instead of relying exclusively on internal stakeholder dynamics
- Reframe problems: Catalyze breakthrough insights for teams, companies and individuals that lead to new understanding about organizational obstacles and challenges
Live and in-person in Vancouver, with your peers
Right now, getting design-thinking training is either expensive (locally), far away (Stanford, Queens), or done solo in front of a computer (IDEOu). We want to create an opportunity for Vancouver leaders to learn design thinking, right-in-your-backyard, in-the-company-of-your-peers.
Domain7 has developed a training program that draws on the practices learned at the THNK School of Creative Leadership, and honed on-the-ground with our own clients, in the form of a one-day facilitated experience. The vision is to create the space to help people discover the basics of design-thinking methodology, and also provide a chance to connect with inspiring peers working here in the city.
Domain7 envisions a community of local innovators who draw on each other's skills, rather than businesses who face common challenges in their own silos. When we are all solving problems more intelligently, our whole community thrives.
