d.Training is an intensive, progressive program over 3 months: in 3 modules, each with 3 on-campus days per module, the participants intensively work with the Dutch Design Thinking method. What makes this program special is that each participant brings an individual challenge to start working on immediately, with the work continued in the off-campus time in the organization.
All three modules follow a clearly structured training concept: 1. Experience Design Thinking principles, 2. Apply Design Thinking principles to a real-life challenge and 3. Transfer Design Thinking principles to your organizational work and project of choice. Within the transfer part of the program, clear reference to specific company projects relevant to the participants will be in the forefront.
The three-month duration of the program provides the foundation for an active and long-term project implementation. Working in small groups and being professionally supervised by experienced coaches of d.school STUDIO.WHY enables an intensive learning process. Participants will be able to sustainably improve processes of change in their companies and inspire colleagues with new working models.
The following aspects are particularly promoted:
- Improved curiosity
- Personal presentation skills
- Co-sensing skills
- Collaboration skills
- Learning skills
- Empowered Holistic thinking
- Design to Business skills
- Empowerment of your professional identity
- Dutch Design Thinking tools & techniques
- Business inspiration
Participants are primarily future managers and management trainees from all industries.
The program is for individuals as well as small groups (up to 3 people) from a company. Its aim is to build confidence in applying the key Design Thinking principles within your organizational work. The program will allow you to discover the leveraging effect of Design Thinking in the most important areas of managing complexity: Collaboration Culture, Innovation Processes and Strategy Implementation.
The three workshop modules will take place once a month from Thursday to Saturday.
