Monash Graduate Association
The Monash Graduate Association (MGA) is the representative body for all graduate research and coursework students enrolled at Monash University. The MGA is an independent, not-for-profit association governed by graduate students, for graduate students.
Monash Graduate Association wanted to introduce a Design Thinking mindset to the team. They engaged Collective Campus to upskill the team in Design Thinking, including the five-stage approach and the tools required at each stage.
Collective Campus delivered training for the Monash Graduate Association team to help them:
- Develop a detailed understanding of Design Thinking as a creative problem-solving mindset.
- Build hands-on knowledge in the use of best practice tools and templates.
- Develop strategies to adopt behaviours required to embed Design Thinking in the culture.
- Identify ideas for two key problem statements to help the team drive innovation internally following the workshop.
The team gained a deep understanding of the value of applying Design Thinking to problems. The workshop helped facilitate an end-to-end understanding of Design Thinking and provided the team with a key selection of tools to develop, prototype, and pitch their ideas. The team came up with over 200 ideas to help solve two key problems identified.
