Conceptual Thinking-workshop

We conduct workshops on the ideation process using the stages and structure of Conceptual Thinking. We combine bits of relevant information with tools that people can take away and use- with group and individual exercises to experience it first hand. We use the group setting to apply an individual approach to developing ideas & concepts uncovering the unique set of perspectives within a group of individuals.
