Our development tracks and training

Digitization Crash Course & Creative Session

Thinking from technological developments

IoT, Machine Learning, Blockchain; What do these new techniques actually entail? How do they work, and what does this mean for your company? The digital session answers all these questions within one day, so that you can immediately apply them to your own products and processes.

Design thinking training and sessions

Thinking from the needs of your user

You think like a designer by putting yourself in the shoes of your user, to discover his or her dreams and thresholds. From this starting point you set up a reliable design challenge, from which you can easily come up with new ideas. Using different selection methods you arrive at one idea. In a possible follow-up session you validate this idea by prototyping and testing.

Validation workshop (Lean Startup) and Lean Startup training

Thinking from implementation

Do you want to innovate? Then fail often, and fail fast. RDM Next's validation session ensures that you know for sure whether your idea will be a success before you have fully developed it. We do this by structurally validating or invalidating all assumptions behind your idea using the Lean Startup method. This way you ensure that you do not throw away money on development that turns out to be unnecessary.

Co-creation session with your customer

Thinking from the perspective

Co-creation starts with your user and ends with your user. Unlike Design Thinking and the Lean Start-up method, you actively involve your user in the creation of your new product or service. This way they have a say in the development, which ensures that their preferences penetrate into the details of the development. Additional advantage: some of your users already feel ownership of the idea.
