In today's world where business is very volatile and unpredictable, organisations need to generate, embrace and execute new ideas for a competitive edge. Avantika brings to you a 2-Day Design Thinking Workshop to help businesses solve problems and innovate relentlessly.

What is Design Thinking?

Design thinking is an approach that can unlock the creative potential of your organisation, no matter the industry. This is done by providing access to the best global practices for developing the mindset, skill-set, and tool-kits of designers and innovators to empower professionals with a human-centric, future-oriented approach.

Personal and Professional benefits

Learn empathetic understanding by connecting more deeply with customers to discover opportunities for innovation.

Learning the techniques of experimenting with idea generation, critical thinking, problem-solving and rapid-prototyping.


The focus is to make Participants:

Action oriented

Comfortable to face ambiguity

Apply a human-centered approach

Have an integrated foresight

Be a part of the dynamic constructive process

Take their enterprise to another level

Be empathic and find new ways to co-create with other employees

Take calculated risks by evaluating ideas and iterating solutions

Who is it for?

Decision making necessitates independent thinking, and independent thinking necessitates design thinking.

These workshops are for leaders and decision makers who are willing to expand their horizon in terms of problem-solving and are in a capacity to incorporate this in their firms, within their team and use it themselves.

They are ideal for people who are in the decision making role, be it Senior Managers, Team Leaders, Founders, Co-Founders, CXOs, Project Managers and the list is endless. Anyone who can go back and impart the learnings from the session to their organisation in order to collectively bring about a holistic attitude while approaching a problem is an ideal participant for these workshops.


The workshops aim to break away from the conventional formats of Design workshops.

They intend to create meaningful experiences through spaces and zones that represent various concepts of Design Thinking. These concepts can assist the participants to successfully inculcate the spirit of design in their workplaces.
