MASTERCLASS 3: LEAN DESIGN

Designers are bringing more to the table than just how a product looks these days. A profession that was once seen as ‘magical’ and ‘creative’ is now more than ever about uncovering what your customers feel and how they think using rigor and critical thinking. In this masterclass, you’ll understand lean design principles and whether you're at the stage of hiring a designer or not, how you can use design to push your business forward.


IN THIS MASTERCLASS YOU'LL

  • Learn what 'lean design' actually means and how you can apply lean design principles to your product
  • Understand what a designer does and how they add value to your business
  • Learn to identify when and how to engage a designer to help you solve a problem
  • See the typical lean design outputs and why they’re important

This 2-hour workshop is delivered in person in Melbourne CBD and will include easy-to-understand theory, a lot of discussion, case studies and hands-on activities. You don’t need to bring anything along, but can bring a laptop or notepad and pen for notes if you wish.


LIVE VIDEO Q&A FOLLOW UP

The workshop will be followed up with a live video Q&A session on the topic on Friday morning. Anyone is welcome to join in and ask questions in this forum. It’s a great way to consolidate your learning by asking the questions that popped into your head after the workshop.
