Do you want to develop yourself further in the field of customer-centric thinking and working? In the training you will learn methods and tools of Design Thinking that are widely applicable within your team and organisation. * Currently as remote training divided over three sessions

IN THIS TRAINING YOU WILL LEARN …


  • What the Design Thinking mindset is and how you put the customer first during creation and innovation processes
  • Which principles form the basis of Design Thinking so that you can tackle complex issues in a creative way, tailored to the customer
  • How to apply Design Thinking methods using examples and various tools

DO YOU WANT TO GO FURTHER THAN JUST SMALL IMPROVEMENTS AND SURPRISE THE CUSTOMER WITH UNIQUE INNOVATIONS THAT RESPOND TO NEEDS?

Too often we think of things that are just incremental improvements to existing products and services. Improvements that seem particularly valuable from an organisational point of view: cost savings, less staff, or process optimization. That’s fine, but the combination with a customer-centric approach works both ways.

Design Thinking is an approach in which the customer comes first and you implement improvements that the customer is actually waiting for. By testing your ideas with customers at an early stage, among other things, you stay on the right course and you do not waste energy, time and costs on ideas that do not meet their needs. This way you can innovate quickly and give customer satisfaction a significant boost!
