Celebrating 3 years Design Thinking Center (Amsterdam and Eindhoven)

Time flies when you are having fun. While helping our clients solve their wicked problems, we almost forget to celebrate the numerous workshops and projects we have done with our customers and partners in the first 3 years of existence of the Design Thinking Center.

Let the numbers speak

During the first 3 years, we welcomed over 7000 participants and 250 organizations in the Design Thinking Center in Amsterdam – and as of the end of December onwards also in Eindhoven. We’ve had a variety of sessions, including a global design event, several customer and employee journey sessions, a Service Blue Print session and a large group co-creation session to define a new vision. And of course we also hosted training sessions, innovation jams and many, many more.

Anthology of projects we did

Curious what the Design Thinking Center location, combined with the creative team, makes possible? Here are a few examples:

  • Formulating an account plan for a market from a Design Thinking Mindset for an SAP account team.
  • Facilitating and create the opportunity for ASVZ to create 4 new initiatives to improve the care given to their disabled clients.
  • Facilitating and co-create a workshop for Nederlandschoon and KIDV on how to prevent or reduce the amount of litter.
  • Creating Service Blue Prints for several of our clients to optimize the Customer of client experience.
