As part of their graduate program, DXC Technology wanted to introduce design thinking to their graduates so that they could apply the methodology on real focus areas internally. They engaged Collective Campus to not only upskill graduates on the methodoology, but also deliver a program that supported implementation of design thinking.
Collective Campus delivered two full day workshops for graduates across Melbourne and Sydney. The workshops helped attendees:
- Develop a detailed understanding of design thinking as a creative problem-solving mindset.
- Build hands-on knowledge in use of best practice tools and templates.
- Develop strategies to adopt behaviours required to embed design thinking.
- Understand how to apply it to real internal challenges.
- Build a plan to apply and implement design thinking following the workshops.
In addition, Collective Campus delivered a mentor session to provide guidance to leaders on how to support graduates in applying design thinking internally.
The graduates gained a deep understanding of the value in applying design thinking at a large organisation. The workshops helped facilitate an end to end understanding of design thinking and provided the graduates with a key selection of tools to develop and prototype their ideas. The graduates were able to apply the learnings in teams, embed design thinking from the bottom up in the organisation and most importantly progress internal initiatives (with support from leaders).
