In our Design Thinking 101 workshops, we ground your team in the essential skills and mindsets of design thinking. We’ll lead you through a full design cycle with a pre-assigned, hypothetical problem or “design challenge” as you learn and apply the design thinking process and unlock creativity and innovation in your team.
Offered as 1/2 day, 1 day, and 2 day sessions.

I’ve attended two workshops with the Designing Insights team. They were both extremely well organized and facilitated, and fun! Each workshop created space for us to lay aside institutional concerns … and (see) through visitors’ and users’ eyes.
Dana and team mindfully created the conditions for knowledge-sharing and community-building among our cohort of grantees. They skillfully coached the group through testing assumptions, learning through the act of making, and taking risks and experimenting.
The design thinking bootcamp was a turning point for my team. It solidified a way of working that is more open and transparent, and has given us a systematic and proven working method.
