In this one-day workshop, you will explore how design thinking methods can inform and improve stakeholder engagement.
Design thinking is well known in the product development industry as a method to approach problems that don’t have straightforward, pre-tested solutions. Complex design challenges instead require non-linear exploration and lateral thinking to understand the issues and, ultimately, reach the optimum solution.
You’ll learn how the application of design thinking principles can yield the insights planners need to make better decisions, while also ensuring stakeholder buy-in.
Through a series of tested, real-world examples and hands-on exercises, you will observe how:
- Design thinking principles can be built into engagement logistics
- Stakeholders can be actively involved in the exploratory process
- Participants can become active agents in accurately identifying challenges and alternative solutions.
