Strategy + Design + INNOVATION

Three Disciplines Unified
& Applied

During our consulting and full-time strategy and design positions, we studied many companies. They all had visions & missions, but we were surprised to see that very few developed action-guiding strategies. Most companies underutilized design, and almost all had a weak innovation pipeline. Many applied Agile engineering methods, but fewer than 20% followed a complete design-driven solution development framework. This resulted in a lack of alignment, missed requirements, delays, costly rework, and a waste of resources. This 3-day training will demystify and connect previously disjoined disciplines to help senior leaders execute across the entire solution development lifecycle to finished products/services. In addition to the relevant content, we worked hard to incorporate the most effective training methods to maximize attendee focus, and active participation, while delivering the most memorable remote learning experience.

FAQ

Who should take this training?
This training is for corporate & startup leaders, and product, design, and innovation executives. You'll find this especially applicable if your company is not yet design-driven, if you don't have a robust innovation program, and if your business and/or corporate strategy is vague.
How is it different from other trainings?
It is based on proven applications across many projects and industries. It is very comprehensive, but we made sure to remove anything that has little effect in practice. Rather than offering separate training on various subjects, we connected them and only focused on the knowledge and the tools that really matter. Bottom line, we have not seen a single training that incorporates strategy with design and innovation that one can instantly apply. You may find other programs that try to cover it all, but such offerings are long, expensive, too theoretical, and often dated.
Do I need all 3 days?
Absolutely. If you skip a day you miss out on how these disciplines play together. The topics and the exercises will only make sense if you attend the entire training.
