In this 2-day Innovation & Design Thinking workshop, participants will learn the framework for innovation and design thinking and solve an actual Challenge Statement set by the organisation. The main difference between the 1-day and 2-day workshop is that in Day 2, participants can deep dive into solving actual challenges at the organisation and also take some time for the ‘Empathy’ stage where they can use workshop time to interview potential users. This workshop is popular for organisations looking to solve actual challenges in their industry, or at their organisation.
