Project managers are pretty amazing. We possess business acumen, leadership flair, people skills and an extraordinary talent for making things happen.
For our projects to be the best they can be, we need to harness all of these talents to set the right foundation before our project has even begun. We need strategic planning skills that are as finely tuned as our delivery ones.
In this two hour interactive workshop you will discover, discuss and flex your strategic planning muscles as a group and in smaller teams.

The session will be fast paced and split up into several workshops crammed into an intensive session. You will be working in small groups in an a fun lively environment so be prepared to get stuck in and collaborate.
Human-Centered design is a creative approach to problem solving developed by IDEO.org. It’s a process that starts with the people you’re designing for and ends with new solutions that are tailor-made to suit their needs.
Human-Centered design is all about building a deep empathy with the people you’re designing for; generating tons of ideas; building a bunch of prototypes; sharing what you’ve made with the people you’re designing for; and eventually putting your innovative new solution out in the world.
