Thanks to the sprint, I now have a deep understanding of design methods that hours of reading could not have given me. I’m inspired and better equipped to strengthen our institution, and prepared to hit the ground running
Designing Insights taught us new techniques for identifying and prioritizing the right ideas/problems and validating them with real users. I highly recommend Dana if you’re looking to energize your team, understand users, and build better collaboration.
Our team universally thought it was a great training — really different from the standard, boring day. We internalized a lot of the processes and are doing design thinking (now) in our projects.
Dana and team created an itinerary for a workshop by listening to our needs; it felt personalized and fit well with the skills we wanted to develop. They are highly organized, personable, funny, and experienced with different types of companies.
I’ve attended two workshops with Designing Insights. They were both extremely well organized, facilitated, and fun! Each session created space for us to lay aside institutional concerns … and (see) through visitors’ and users’ eyes.
The amount of work we accomplished in the sprint would have taken months to do in most companies. The sprint left me with many new insights and techniques to quickly tackle the problem and iterate.
You skillfully navigated the nuances of a complex project and infused energy, insights, and a collaborative spirit into the work. Thank you for the thoughtful and invaluable report synthesizing the learning, themes, and outcomes.
We had a great workshop with Designing Insights! I loved how design thinking was broken down into digestible steps, and the immediate “ahas” of how it can be applied to our work and personal lives.
Your organization NEEDS Dana. Her studied Design Thinking approach, blended with her expertise from years in the field, give her rare insight as a mentor, coach and leader. Your work will never be the same.
