Masterclass 1: Design thinking for innovation

Duncan Wardle, Former Head of Innovation and Creativity, Disney

Do you ever wonder why most of your best ideas come to you in the shower, on the commute, while falling asleep, or some other such place? Have you ever pitched a new idea, only to watch it get diluted or killed as it moves through the processes?
The Design Thinking for Innovation 1-day workshop is an immersive program that teaches how to create an “innovation light switch” within an organization. Duncan Wardle will give each participant a unique set of Innovation Tools and Techniques – ones honed during his tenure at Disney as Head of Innovation and Creativity. It’s the same tool kit he uses today to teach innovation at companies like Apple, Amazon, and universities like Yale and Harvard.
Armed with these creative behaviours and innovation tools, your = organization will see immediate changes in your culture, and will be empowered to develop innovative, disruptive new ideas and solutions that will provide lasting, tangible benefits to your business for years to come.

Key takeaways

  • Each participant will learn how to use the Creative Behaviours.
  • Each participant will learn how to transfer the power of “my idea” to “our idea”, accelerating the opportunity to get it done.
  • The workshop is designed to engage both introverts & extroverts, and all three learning styles.
  • The workshop will cover the 2 Lateral Thinking Tools that help get people out of their “River of Thinking” (their expertise) and allow them to innovate.
  • Everyone will learn a common language around Innovation & Creativity.
  • The participants will learn how to use powerful storytelling techniques to convey ideas.
