Design for Strategy Workshops

Strategy is fundamentally a creative practice because it requires perspective, recombinations and reframing. In all of these workshops, participants will learn and apply 4 basic principles of design thinking: empathy, lateral thinking, prototyping and story. They will leave with tools and frameworks to apply to their actual project, organizational and business challenges.

Past Topics

3i Framework™

The 3i Creativity™ is Figure 8 Thinking’s action based methodology to cultivate creativity. Curiosity is the context for all creative action. Intuition, ‪improvisation, and insight are the major components of creativity. They do not occur in a linear order; rather there is an integrative ebb and flow between them. Intuition, or pattern recognition, and improvisation, a chaordic system that values structure and randomness, are critical to ignite the final insight.

Wonder Rigor™

WonderRigor™ is a chaordic system which requires us to be grounded in curiosity, and regularly loop in and out of improvisation, intuition and impact. Wonder is about imagining, supposing, day-dreaming and asking “What if?”; rigor is about discipline, time-on-task and structure.
