Mastering Design thinking – Designer’s Mind Workshop, Bangalore


Part 1:

Mastering Empathy: Getting deeper into the user’s cognitive bias, mental models, conceptual thinking models, influences that the surroundings or the environment plays with the user, rejoicing how the user’s mental map and psychology changes with the people that they interact. Empathy can’t just be a job, it’s a passionate commitment that one makes to understand and perceive behaviours, emotions, choices and keen interest towards what makes us human. To get empathy, it is important to understand our brain & it’s workings better. Insights, perspectives and stories based on the research on neuroscience, neurogenesis and neuroplasticity would ignite the art of leveraging choice. As you have a better grasp of yourself, your capacities and your possibilities. You are all set and ready to embrace deep empathy, behaviour models and choice constructs. Activity 1, A 10 minutes of catharsis would introduce the participants on getting comfortable with chaos and using chaos towards creativity.

Child's Play: The experimental mind-set of shameless sketching, along with the idea mash up of synthesizing different experiences to craft a new one for the target audience. This module helps to form the connecting bond towards product teams and facilitates to shed inhibitions through shameless sketching. Through this module we look to foster team spirit. An interactive activity of shameless sketching on an idea or a product sets the stage for the next module. Activity 2, Shameless sketching on an idea or product.

Part 2:
Director's cut: Have you perceived vulnerability as a strength? Have you ever seen vulnerability as a creative leadership trait? Did you know vulnerability promotes neurogenesis and neuroplasticity?

Great products require great questions; a questioning mind-set dispels the conclusionary myths of what a product should be.

Questions help to create a persona, a brand, a product or a service around the users.

1. Do you have a conclusionary mindset or a questioning mindset?
2. Are your comfortable with emotions?
3. Can you craft a product that could evoke a specific emotion?
4. How could we adopt a prototyping mindset to foster creativity?

Embracing emotional design requires the director’s cut, like creating a movie yet delivering value through the product or service.

Activity 3: Role play as a curtain closure

X Workshop Abstract

Great design is not just about putting pixels (pX) on the screen, it’s about putting great people’s eXperiences (pX). Nurturing the designer's mind is essential to building eXperience driven products. A designer's mind rooted in deep empathy is a delight to watch, as it takes on to create a world of eXperiences. Creating products is quickly becoming a team sport, for large enterprises. What we bring as the creator or as one of the co-creators of the product is extremely critical to the success of the product. Products created out of the designer’s mind have a high success rate of 10x compared to a ‘non-design thinking’ team..
