The world of business today is very volatile and unpredictable. Organizations need to generate, embrace and execute new ideas for a competitive edge. Design thinking is an approach that can unlock the creative potential of your organization, no matter the industry. We at Avantika, introduce Design Thinking Workshops, to help businesses solve problems and innovate relentlessly.
We do this by providing an access to the best global practices for developing the mindset, skillset, and toolkits of designers and innovators to empower professionals with a human-centric, future-oriented approach.

Who is it for?
Decision making necessitates independent thinking and independent thinking necessitates design thinking.
Leaders and Decision Makers who are willing to expand their horizon in terms of problem solving and are in a capacity to incorporate this in their firms, within their team and use it themselves. These workshops are ideal for people who are in the Decision Making role, be it Senior Managers, Team Leaders, Founders, Co-Founders, CXOs, Project Managers and the list is endless. Anyone who can go back and impart the learning from the session to their organization in order to collectively bring about a holistic attitude while approaching a problem is an ideal participant for these workshops.

We intend to create meaningful experiences through spaces and zones that represent various concepts of Design Thinking. These concepts can assist the participants to successfully inculcate the Spirit of Design in their workplaces.
The participants will be exposed to the following design tools and techniques throughout the 2 days of the workshop:
