Design Thinking with Entrepreneurial Mindset Profiling

Possessing an entrepreneurial mindset is essential to sustaining growth and innovation. The Entrepreneurial Mindset Profile® (EMP) is a cutting-edge assessment tool that examines the skills and capabilities that are needed and assists employees to assess the degree to which they are utilising an “entrepreneurial mindset” and provides resources to leverage that competitive edge. Participants working with BYOM complete an assessment of their entrepreneurial mindset using the EMP tool, and the data therein will indicate gaps in capacity/capability of these entrepreneurs to enable them to succeed. 

Design Thinking is recently known as creative tools that help organisations to achieve innovative goals. However, the true value of Design Thinking is in its ability to cultivate a set of ‘designer mindset’, or ‘design ability’. 

Designers are trained to approach complex situations without assuming solutions – instead, they observe and redefine the given challenges and develop possibilities through iterations. 

In today’s complex world, organisations need to acquire the attitude of approaching challenges by not assuming solutions to ‘solve’ the given problems. Highly complex social problems, requires design approaches to develop interventions that would shift the course of the situation. This workshop delivers a framework to encourage participants to rethink their approaches towards highly complex social problems. This workshop allows participants to understand the importance of not jumping to solutions, but instead to understand strategic output as part of bigger systems.
