Design thinking – your ticket out of the training ghetto?

dt-prototyping-kitIf your organisation is changing faster than your L&D team can adapt you risk becoming irrelevant. Don Taylor called this the “Training Ghetto” in his excellent post.

I believe design thinking can help Learning and Development teams lead rapid change in any organisation.

This September you have at least three opportunities to discover design thinking.

1. Join the free LPI webinar on Thursday 5th September at 11am.

What can you expect?

  • Human centered design vs Business focus
  • Adopting a culture of prototyping and feedback loops
  • Using design jams to bring together people with different skill sets and backgrounds

I’ll be bringing these ideas to life with real stories from some of the projects I’ve been working on this year.

2. Come to my session on day 2 of Learning Live (11/12 September London).

Despite the name, design thinking is more about doing than thinking. The best way to learn it is to do it.

What can you expect?

  • Experience the design thinking process by actually doing it
  • Design something for someone else in the room
  • A fast paced, messy, hands on session
  • To leave with a practical guide you can take back to work and apply

3. Don’t miss weeLearning Glos on Thursday 26th September from 6pm

What can you expect?

  • How can eLearning benefit from a design thinking approach?
  • Get involved in a design jam
  • The usual excellent networking and socialising fun

Book your free tickets here

Look forward to seeing you in September, let me know if you have any questions in the meantime.
