Private Trainings

Our Platform Design private training programs are delivered in optimized formats and will help your teams become part of a network of individuals and organizations that master the real potential of platform design, beyond buzzwords for transformative impact.

Our trainings provide examples and training-optimized case studies. We often also integrate strategic project-work in to ensure that one or multiple teams can develop not only an understanding of the topic, but also apply the new skills to existing strategic challenges, products, innovations, and more.

Both online and in-person trainings formats are possible.

Composable training models
  • Mindshift sessions, to quickly provide an understanding of platform for executives and business leaders;
  • Bootcamp like experiences to create a new design capability internally, and bring your teams in touch with a global community of certified professionals;
  • Organization wide webinars and learning programs, to reach everyone in the organization;
  • Developing internal extensions and personalizations of the toolkits for when the maturity of the organization grows and needs the integration of the frameworks with the existing innovation and design practices.
