STUDIO.WHY Geldermalsen

A good solution for any challenge starts with asking the right questions. Sometimes we have the tendency to act immediately, but that might work against you. Better said, you risk skipping steps or asking the wrong questions and therefor work with the wrong answers. With this training you will learn that a solution is only successful if it is actually used. To achieve that you will need to make sure your solution fits the perception of your costumer/stakeholder/user. Together we will set up a stakeholder dashboard, which allows you to adapt to changing needs of your costumer/stakeholder/user.

You will work with a fictional case and actors. When it happens that we can use a case of one of the participants and speak to real stakeholders, we will do that. This will make the learning experience even more realistic. There are short masterclasses, you will work in a team, practice with different participants and work with actors and/or stakeholders. At the end of the training you will present your insights, gathered from your (fictional) stakeholders, together with the challenge you would like have solved based on these insights.

The training will last for about 8 hours. This edition will take place on location in Geldermalsen, The Netherlands.

Note that this training is in the Dutch language!
