Event description
Join Paper Giant as we explore how to translate data into actionable insights.

About this Event

Human Centred Design (HCD) is an approach that combines research, design and strategy to create human-centred solutions to the complex problems that the world, people and organisations face.

Embedding your insights into the ideation and design phases of work is critical to successful HCD.

In this two hour workshop, we will explore ways to ensure that any strategy and design work you do makes the most of the insights you have generated through upfront discovery work.

After the workshop you'll receive a design synthesis and insight generation guide with tips and tricks for making sure your insights remain at the centre of your design work.

This workshop will cover:

- The importance of making time to generate insights via discovery research, or exploratory research

- The difference between data, information, insights and actionable insights

- How to synthesise information into actionable insights

- Writing how-might-we statements and design principles

Who this workshop is for you if:

- You are a design researcher wanting to have impact

- You are an innovation or design practitioner wanting to adopt a more ”research-led” approach to your work

- You want to know more about the rigour involved in the magic of design synthesis and insight generation
