    122 Hudson St

    $1,350.00

    It’s no secret; better understanding your customers—their thoughts, motivations, actions—helps you to design better products, services and experiences. Today’s most successful and innovative organizations are looking beyond what people are doing and discovering why their users are making the decisions they make. To do this, one needs a set of tools and tactics to both collect data and pull out insights. Over this two-day, immersive workshop, dive into design thinking tools for building empathy and unearthing unique customer insights. This learning experience will not only show you how to navigate the often challenging process of understanding human behaviors, but also how to lead this practice with your team back at work. WHAT YOU’LL LEAVE THIS WORKSHOP WITH -A wide range of empathy-building activities that include a field visit, observational tools and creative techniques for finding meaningful stories -Tools and frameworks for developing insights from the data you collect, such as personas, affinity maps and point-of-view statements -Experience facilitating your workshop team through the activities and receiving feedback from peers in a safe practice space -An action plan on how you’ll use what you’ve learned in your work and how you’ll roll it out to your team -A toolkit with worksheets, sample agendas and how-to guides to help you integrate what you’ve learned into your own projects -One-on-one coaching with our training consultants who are helping bring this work to life in organizations like Facebook, Cisco, Acumen, Porsche, and the NYC Department of Education. WHO’S THIS FOR Interested in deeply learning how to lead your team in research and developing insights about your customers for your organization? This workshop is for you. You don’t have to have design, research or innovation in your title to take this workshop.
