Why Design-Thinking? 

Design-thinking allows teams and organisations to surface and solve complex organisational challenges. Our design-thinking training empowers individuals in your company to identify challenges, form multi-disciplinary teams, and apply the design-thinking process to solve real business problems in South Africa.

Design-Thinking Playbook

We know that every organisation is different and your design-thinking process should be adapted just for your organisation.  Design methods fail when they fails to integrate into the on-going work of a team successfully. We leave you with a custom Design-Thinking playbook to take back into your organisation to multiply the effect of your investment into Design-Thinking. 

On-Site Delivery

Our Design-Thinking workshops are delivered on-site and are customised to your team's needs. We've applied Design-Thinking to improving Customer-Centricity in an Insurance firm, have worked with a sales team to develop a custom design-thinking playbook which allowed them to develop customer-centred and innovative ways to generate value for clients. 

The workshops are ideal for your team no-matter what level your team are at. 

Design-Ready

We're skeptical of Design-Thinking trainers who believe that the Design-Thinking process is a panacea. Design-Thinking alone will not fix your business' challenges. To maximise your investment into Design-Thinking training your organisation must become Design-Ready.  All of our Design-Thinking workshops bake organisation-design into design training so that when you walk away from a design workshop with Inquisition  you will be able to connect your design capabilities to your organisation's challenges and understand how to overcome some of the typical blockers to Design Thinking.
