Why Design Thinking? 

Design Thinking allows teams and organisations to surface and solve complex organisational challenges.

Inquisition's Design Thinking training empowers individuals in your company to identify challenges, form multi-disciplinary teams, and apply the Design Thinking process to solve real business problems and drive innovation in South Africa.

From Design Thinking to Design Ready

We're skeptical of Design Thinking trainers who believe that the Design Thinking process is a panacea. Design Thinking alone will not fix your business' challenges.

To maximise your investment into Design Thinking training your organisation must become Design Ready.  

All of our Design Thinking workshops blend organisation-design into design training so that when you walk away from a design workshop with Inquisition you will be able to connect your design capabilities to your organisation's challenges and understand how to overcome some of the typical blockers to Design Thinking.

Receive a Custom Design Thinking Playbook

We know that every organisation is different and your design-thinking process should be adapted just for your organisation.

Design methods fail when they fails to integrate into the on-going work of a team successfully.

We leave you with a custom Design Thinking playbook to take back into your organisation to multiply the effect of your investment into Design Thinking.

On-Site Delivery

Our Design Thinking workshops are delivered on-site and are customised to your team's needs.

"Very few times in business, do you get to participate in a process that can change the course of your business. That is exactly what INQUISITION did for us."

Reinard du Plessis – GM Marketing at ATKV

"Inquisition’s practical, implementable approach enabled our team to learn new skills and apply them within a very quick timeframe. Inquisition encouraged us to become far more conscious of data and results in our approach, and also helped us see how we could build regular testing and experiments into our activities."
