About V&A Dundee Design for Business Accelerator
V&A Dundee’s Design Thinking Accelerator is an immersive programme aimed at organizations that are open to new ways of problem-solving and thinking that can support innovation in their organisations. Those taking part bring to the programme a real-life product, service, or business challenge which they will actively progress during a series of six two-hour workshops. The workshops will be conducted entirely online.
The approach is structured around proven Design Thinking techniques combining design process and design methods with organisational practice. Over this series of workshops, participants will gain experience in the application of these techniques and will start to develop a key project. The practical approach will easily transfer into participants’ working practice.
The deadline for applications is 12:00 on Monday 6th September with successful applicants informed on the 7th September.
