Design thinking is an approach that has the capability to give a new outlook to companies to solve problems and help them innovate. Design thinking helps structure team interactions to cultivate greater inclusiveness, foster creativity, deepen empathy, and align people around specific goals and results.

Design Thinking is nothing without design doing.        

Business today is about emotions, wants and wishes. To meet these new demands, we need tools that are human centric, culture and social, and which keep innovation at the cord. One way to address these needs is by applying Design Thinking.



By combining business methods with Design Thinking, organizations can establish a more sensitive and comprehensive approach towards handling problems and creating value in their products/services.

The workshops aim to break away from the conventional formats of Design workshops. We intend to create meaningful experiences through spaces and zones that represent various concepts of Design Thinking. These concepts can assist the participants to successfully inculcate the Spirit of Design in their workplaces.

The participants will be exposed to the following design tools and techniques throughout the 2 days of the workshop.


User Research through interviews

Tips on how to observe your audience and build a connection and empathize to understand them better. This zone is an introduction to explore the potential of design research methodologies.

In-depth study of the context and environment

Understanding the environment and context that surrounds the user is a crucial part of any intervention. This also helps in understanding the purpose and the reason why a product is created the way it is.

Research Synthesis and Analysis

This helps in breaking down of research and building insights to develop a strategy that can transform businesses.


It is a tool that helps teams explain a product, service or experience to demonstrate its value. It also helps in empathizing and making sense of complex scenarios.

User journey mapping

This is a method for identifying touch points in the process of a customer’s interaction with a product or a service. It helps organizations build a clear picture about where user is coming from and what are they trying to achieve.

Need finding

How to formulate a genuine need that can be an opportunity for businesses to create a USP and out-compete competition.

Brainstorming and Idea Generation

It’s a most valued tool for the path of innovation. This helps in coming up with something new and original by boosting imagination and curiosity.

Prototyping, Testing and Validating

This is a tool to create fast test models to get user feedback by using simple material and building fast solutions.

Co-creation and Collaboration

Good ideas can be sparked by interacting and collaborating with new and diverse people coming from different walks of life. This encourages the culture of co-creation within an organization.

Learning through failures

Failure is the greatest teacher. Testing - Validation - Failing - Learning from the failures and Rebuilding is a continuous process.

Embracing ambiguity

The strong ‘need’ to clarify and understand an ambiguous situation opens new doors for exploration. This power of ‘Not Knowing’ leads to creative search.

Creating new values

Creating values is important because experiences are meaningful to people. Experiences are not just functional, but also social, cultural and personal.
