​A masterclass with Fjord, a global design and innovation firm who use the power of design to create solutions people love.

Bring breakthrough connected products and services to life by redesigning people's relationships with the world around them.
Master the Design Thinking process and start applying it to your organisation. Design is a transformational force that shapes thinking and enables meaningful and emotional differentiation in the eyes of consumers. Design Thinking has become increasingly important in the business world and organisations are increasingly trying to master the competitive advantage that Design Thinking can offer.

Mastering Design Thinking will help your organisation build innovative products, services and experiences that connect and resonate with customers. In order to become a driving force for innovation you need to master three creative skills:

  1. You need to look at problems and situations through a human-centred mindset
  2. You need to think differently to search for novel opportunities
  3. You need to embrace an experimental attitude
