Who invited Design Thinking to the Change Management Party and what has it got that I don’t?

Design Thinking is being widely adopted by organisations to help develop new strategies, products and services. However, does Design Thinking offer new ways to delivering change programmes in a way that derives real innovation and end user engagement / buy in?

To answer this question, The Change Management Institute have been working in close partnership with a leading design agency, Door, to get to grips with the tools of Design Thinking and how they can apply to change programmes. Phylnt (a sister company of Door) earlier this year launched a course dedicated to educating Change Practitioners in the tools and techniques of Design Thinking with the lens focused on challenging our common approaches to change and how applying design approaches could lead to previously untapped interventions and insights. 

Join us in London on 27th Feb 2019 as Door Founder, Lee Sankey along with several guests take a look at some of the key principles of what he calls "Design Driven Change" and share reflections from those that have taken formal training as they talk about their experience as to how they have applied the tools and show case some of the results that have been achieved.
