Our innovation and design thinking courses provide you with the skills needed to make social, cultural and economic transformations. 

Whether you’re working in a startup or a multi-billion-dollar corporation, no matter the context, our courses will help you understand how to innovate. You’ll learn to apply innovative strategies to business, government, social enterprise and community organisations.

You’ll also learn the analysis and strategy skills to identify the context around your ideas and to separate what sounds good from what can actually be done — that’s what design thinking training is for.

Whether you start your own business, or help transform an existing organisation, your innovation design skills will make you a critical part of any team.
