Event description

Description

Do you want to design and run workshops that are energetic, encourage sharing and promote innovative thinking?

Whether it is a co-creation session with your customers or a product development meeting with internal teams, collaborative workshops are a creative and efficient way to gain insights and generate new ideas.  

A workshop may be a simple idea, but when not planned or designed effectively it can descend into a frustrating and unproductive experience. In this session, we will show you how to plan, design, and run effective workshops. We will share strategies on how to encourage collaboration and idea generation, and we will teach you different workshop activities you can use to achieve the results you want.

Choose this course if you are you interested in...

  • Exploring design challenges through workshops to come up with effective solutions

  • Bringing teams together to share knowledge and generate ideas

  • Engaging stakeholders and keeping key groups of people at the centre of the design process

  • Collecting feedback and insights from customers through workshop activities

  • Gaining confidence in running and leading collaborative workshops

What will you learn?

  • A framework for workshop design: How to plan and run effective workshops, including defining goals, writing effect agendas, and assigning roles and responsibilities.

  • Facilitation techniques for workshops: How to encourage collaboration and trust, stimulate conversations and get ideas flowing.

  • Designing and leading workshop activities: How to choose appropriate activities and techniques to achieve your goals, and how best to introduce those activities. We will bring you through a variety of techniques used in different workshop scenarios, such as:

* Research debriefing
* Sharing knowledge
* Strategy development
* Idea generation and brainstorming

  • Maintaining balance and flow: How to keep energy of the session going and keep the workshop on track.

  • Resolving conflict: How to resolve conflicts and deal with tensions within groups.

  • Concluding workshops: How to wrap up and communicate insights.

What to expect on the day?

This is a very practical, hands-on session which will itself be conducted in a workshop style. You will have the opportunity to plan and run a workshop, and experience a variety of workshop activities. You will walk away with new ideas and a framework for running collaborative workshops that you can apply immediately.

You will receive a print-out of all training materials and course activities. There is no exam in this course but all successful participants will receive a certificate of completion at the end of the day.
