Peralada workshop

Most of us have been programmed to function in an industrial society, but we are now steaming into a new digital world. A new era with new rules, new rituals, concepts, paradigms, business models and strategies. How? In order to be a key driver in this new economy, we need to explore new frameworks to start designing that new world we want to live in.

One of these methods is the Socratic Design Method, a method – created by Humberto Schwab – to free people and organisations from the burden of unproductive or even destructive procedures, unclear language, old thoughts, silo thinking and wrong assumptions. If we want to create strong new values, we must be in a state of virginal thinking, not as a stand alone, but as a hyper creative collective.

Socratic Design creates new horizons of values in which the process of design can take place, allowing a lot more space to create, make and design new products or services.

Come and join us for this unique opportunity to learn to use the Socratic Design Method, get insights about the world we’re moving into rapidly, and learn how to transform and adapt your business to prepare for the perpetual technological changes ahead. In good company, in a unique atmosphere.

Check out full program and details here.

Price: 499,- Euro excl. VAT. for the two-day workshop (lunch included)
