Using Design Research for Problem Solving

Learn how you can use design research techniques to question assumptions that will develop your problem-solving skills.
About this session

The key difference between individuals and leaders is not by knowing the right answers, but by knowing the right questions to ask. Having access to a series of questions helps you to see problems in new ways, gather better and critically-needed information, and inspire others to answer them in an intent set by you.

In this workshop, we explore various design research techniques that will help you gain clarity over business challenges and the solutions needed to overcome them.

By the end of this class you will be able to:

  • Know how to ask the right questions for different scenarios.
  • Get a chance to be an interrogator to experience the process.
  • Strategically use the methodology to tackle any gaps in knowledge in a workplace or in a market.


This class is for:
  • Business or team leaders who want to tackle the root causes of their company's or team's business problems.
  • Designers who want to be better and more effective at design research.
  • Anyone who wants to develop their leadership and communication skills by knowing what the right questions to ask are.

FAQs

There are so many webinars. How is NewCampus any different?

We’re not a webinar. Nor are we an online course. NewCampus is a community learning experience—interactive, intimate and energising. You are not listening passively, you will be actively getting involved. Our sessions are designed so that you actually get to interact with both the speaker, but also more importantly with your new peers. They will be your future collaborators, clients and co-founders. 

All our learnings formats—workshops, mentoring sessions, tiny conferences, dialogues and more—are designed with these principles in mind. There will always be a chance for you to share ideas in a small group, practice newly minted skills and get real-time feedback.

What do I need to join this session?

A stable wifi connection, a quiet well-lit corner and some headphones. After confirming your spot, you will receive instructions in your email about how to join this session via Zoom. You will also need to be ready to switch on your laptop camera and microphone to interact with your fellow colearners, who will need to be able to hear and see you.

Who attends NewCampus?

NewCampus works best for:

  • Business, technology and creative professionals looking to rise up, lead and be a part of shaping their industries.
  • Small-business owners, entrepreneurs
  • Start-up founders (pre-seed to seed level)

Many members are in the first 5-15 years of their career, but our community is diverse and sees many in different age groups.

Most colearners join in from the Asia Pacific region which our session times work best for, but we are seeing new people from Europe and the US every week.
