Design capability building

Build your team's skills in creative leadership and human-centred innovation.

We offer large-scale design capability building services to introduce your staff to design thinking practices and agile processes. We teach teams the importance of understanding users and being open to an iterative design approach that enables ongoing improvements and updates to products and services. 

We use design thinking in every project at Portable and over the years we’ve built up a wealth of knowledge. We can tailor our design training and coaching to suit each organisation. We can start with the fundamentals and quickly equip your teams with the resources to test their own ideas and work collaboratively with their users. Or, we can build on what you already have and work with you to spot opportunities or barriers to innovation and growth.   

01

Provide on the job training

We often co-design projects and services directly with your organisation. This enables your team to learn about design thinking, the importance of putting users at the centre of the process, and how to design iteratively while working on a live project.

02

Spark innovation through workshops

Our designers have extensive experience conducting workshops on design thinking for people with no formal design experience. The workshops highlight the importance of collaborating with users and lived experience experts, include research tools and offer hands-on experience in designing a prototype and testing.

03

Toolkits to help you train others

Our take-home tool kits are tailored to the needs and challenges facing each organisation. They provide you with a step-by-step guide on how to identify user needs, develop a concept and iterate. They can be used to refresh learnings for workshop participants or to help you coach others.
