In partnership with Volta, Startup Zone is happy to present the following workshop:

Design Thinking Bootcamp

Having a strong understanding of design thinking processes and principles can be a game-changer for collaborative teams working to enhance or diversify product offerings. Companies such as Apple, Coca Cola, and Walt Disney, for example, all practice design thinking and see 10-year returns yielding 2.19 times that of the 500.

In this Design Thinking Bootcamp at Startup Zone, led by Christine Hamblin (BCA, BSc, MTEI), Atlantic Innovation Lead at Accenture, you will discover and apply the five phases of the design thinking process empathize, define, ideate, prototype and test – to your organization’s challenges or pain points. Through various hands-on activities and lessons, this design thinking bootcamp will force you to challenge your assumptions, redefine the problem your company is facing, and help you gain a real understanding of your users. From there, you will be able to iterate on or create a better, more effective solution for your business.

To make the most of this bootcamp – which runs as two half-day sessions from 9am to 12pm – come prepared with a pain point or problem your company is experiencing (or we will identify one) to tackle together. Following this bootcamp, you will become the champion of Design Thinking within your organization, leading the charge when it comes to framing and solving problems creatively, and shaking up your organization’s product offerings.

This workshop will be held at Startup Zone. Coffee and a light breakfast will be provided.
