DESIGN LEADERSHIP: FOUR DAYS OF DESIGN THINKING

Are you caught up in a company culture with increasing demands on resilience, competitiveness, and readiness for change? Do you want to release the creative forces of your organisation, and are you ready to try out new and innovative methods to get there?

The Design Leadership Course will provide you with:

  • Inspiration
  • Knowledge of how to use the Design to Improve Life methods and design thinking
  • Insight on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs)
  • The possibility of testing your own business cases

Design is no longer about aesthetics and embellishment. Today, it is one of the most crucial tools we have to address the world’s greatest challenges – a concept we call “Design to Improve Life”.

At INDEX, we are passionate about sustainability and are guided by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Since 2011, our own certified Design to Improve Life Education methods have been used by educational institutions and businesses in Denmark and abroad. The knowledge and tools offered in the Design Leadership Course can be applied to almost any practice and local context.

What is the Design to Improve Life Compass?
The Compass is a design thinking and innovation tool that offers a fantastic way for businesses to turn ideas into desired change and concrete results. It builds on social, economic and environmental sustainability with a focus on the users.

The Compass process ensures the idea generation and development in your business happens in a systematic and high-level manner. Participants’ creative and innovative skills are put to optimal use, resulting in more deliberate and improved end solutions. The creative ideas are developed through cooperation, and participants are challenged to research the validity of their ideas over and over to ensure the best result. This method not only raises the bar of the innovative process, but is highly motivating for the participants.

Working with the Compass ensures a high level of information, knowledge sharing, and responsibility, as participants must cooperate within a serious and demanding process towards solutions.
