Executive Education at the Design Museum
Design for Business
The Design Museum offers a range of workshops and executive learning opportunities in partnership with our Learning Department. These make an excellent addition to an away-day, and are designed to integrate with our exhibitions programme, and be accessible for people with differing levels of seniority within an organisation.
The benefits of design thinking and design approaches to business are becoming increasingly documented. Leveraging the designer’s toolkit, businesses and business leaders are adopting an approach to problem-solving that prioritises user and customer needs, collaboration, fast prototyping and testing to unlock creativity and drive innovation across products, services, and strategies.
The Design Museum offers modular action learning programmes for a range of industries tailored for your business and drawing on the museum's collections and design expertise. The learning experience is fully integrated with one of the world’s most inspiring and thought-provoking environments.
Our programmes provide a deep understanding of the dynamics, impact and applicability of design thinking. You experience design thinking in action. Participants will come away with an increased understanding of design thinking, design approaches and their benefits, as well as the tools to drive positive impact and change.
Learning outcomes include:
• Understanding the core principles of design thinking and the value of design
• Applying practical approaches to developing human and customer-centric processes
• Adopting agile methodologies for generating solutions, iterating and incorporating feedback
Typically taking place on Fridays, programmes range from one to three days according to requirements and prices start from £350 per delegate (based on 20 -40 delegates).
