Workshops

We help businesses diversify their offerings to reach cost-sensitive and eco oriented B2B and B2C customers

We believe that the Nordic countries can get back on a sustainable growth track mainly not just by domestic growth and exports to developed countries but they must increasingly come from their offerings to emerging economies.

The issue here is that emerging economies require solutions that have “affordable excellence” for B2B and B2C sectors.

Our workshops are very interactive and focused on driving business results. We provide participants with a range of creative problem solving, interdisciplinary thinking, and innovation tools and techniques and coming up with a framework for immediately applying these skills.

We will help you with

 

  • Design and Innovation Strategy
  • Design thinking
  • Interdisciplinary approach
  • Applying your skills to develop viable solutions
  • Use our framework to support your innovation activities
