Grow Your Organisation By Solving Problems Differently

All organisations have problems of our volunteers or service users engaging with us.

The benefits of solving these problems are huge – yet often we find ourselves struggling to know where to begin. We need a way to do things differently.

This workshop will introduce you to a new straightforward process for solving such problems in the most efficient, effective way possible.

What will I learn?

By the end of this session you will:

  • Learn the method of ‘Design Thinking’ for better problem solving
  • Learn how Design Thinking can be applied to charities
  • Work through a real example chosen from your organisation of your volunteers or service users’ engagement dropping off
  • Develop realistic, small solutions to take forwards and test.
