To Solve The Problems Our Communities Face, We Need To Innovate Through Collaboration
The world is changing. Your clients are expecting your organisation to collaborate and innovate to better meet their needs. Whilst as a society, in recent times we have made fantastic progress on a number of social issues, the problems of the future that are yet to be solved, are complex in their nature and require us to act and think differently from what we have in the past. These problems are often wicked problems that require collaboration, strategic thinking and clever design that takes into account the impact to the wider systems that your organisation operates in.
Our 'Co-Design For Impact' training gives you the skills to bring the voice of your clients into your decision-making to create better solutions that meet their needs. We have pulled together the best practice tools and methodologies from around the world, to equip you with what you need to deliver more impact.
Alongside Co-design, we cover essential methodologies such as systems thinking, wicked problems, implementation, planning and evaluation techniques.
Upon completion of the training, you will leave with a solid understanding of the different concepts and an action plan for the first steps of implementing these tools into your work.
