Seeds Global Innovation Lab strives to provide the tools and language to do just that. Through The Runway training, participants will learn tools to produce effective innovations. The Runway is beneficial both personally and organizationally as you develop a common language around innovation. Through our unique and engaging learning environment, you will gain practical experience in Design Thinking from our trained facilitators. Rather than designing solutions that become irrelevant, this training helps to create innovation around your specific end-users and their needs.
While we believe this training would benefit anyone, regardless of where they sit organizationally, the practicum is most useful for mid-level leaders or team members as they're much closer to end-users than upper level management. The primary audience for the content is would-be practitioners of Design Thinking.
I don’t have a team I can attend with. Can I still come?
Because we believe this training is most beneficial for teams to go through together, we highly encourage group enrollment.
What is included in the training cost?
Lunch, snacks, coffee and a few other surprises are provided during the training.
I have a basic knowledge of Design Thinking. Should I come to this training?
Yes! A basic knowledge of Design Thinking is a great asset to this training, but is not a prerequisite or disqualifier. Learning together and working with your team in this setting will help launch you into success as you dive into your own challenges.
Where is the training held? Where will I be staying?
We host this training in various locations throughout the year. You will select the location when you register. We do not currently book or provide accommodations, however we may offer suggestions on where to stay.
What do I need to bring with me?
We will provide you with notebooks, pens, handouts and other resources you will need. You may bring a laptop or tablet, however we have found they can be a distraction.
Because we believe this training is most beneficial for teams to go through together, we highly encourage group enrollment. Just look at how much you save for sending more than 3 people—that’s how much we believe in collective learning.
We have training events scheduled in the following cities on the following dates.
