Do you want to know more about your design team and their problem-solving capacities?
A lot of designers go through their career, moving from company to company, using a fixed set of skills, usually linked to the use of a CAD software. As they become faster in using their tools, the routine design tasks become boring, and that's when they start thinking about moving to a new company and taking on new challenges. The
Design problem solving is a never-ending challenge. A knife is probably one of the first tools humans ever designed. It has a simple construction with a handle and a blade, and yet, there has been millions of different designs for it ever since. Then why is it that a designer working on a sheet metal factory becomes bored with the possibilities
I am offering a series of training sessions aimed at increasing the problem-solving capabilities of the in-house design teams in the industry. The workshops are based on the Function-Behaviour-Structure design framework which has been developed through studying many high-performance design and engineering teams. The sessions are specifically aimed at highly-creative staff that need motivation and intellectual challenges all the time to stay excited about their role.
Function • Behaviour • Structure
