Design Thinking Bootcamp @ Ignite Labs


Having a strong understanding of design thinking processes and principles can be a
game-changer for collaborative teams working to enhance or diversify product offerings.
Companies such as Apple, Coca Cola, and Walt Disney, for example, all practice
design thinking and see 10-year returns yielding 2.19 times that of the S&P 500.

In partnership with Volta, this Design Thinking Bootcamp at Ignite, led by Christine
Hamblin (BCA, BSc, MTEI), Atlantic Innovation Lead at Accenture, you will discover and
apply the five phases of the design thinking process – empathize, define, ideate,
prototype and test – to your organization’s challenges or pain points. Through various
hands-on activities and lessons, this design thinking bootcamp will force you to
challenge your assumptions, redefine the problem your company is facing, and help you
gain a real understanding of your users. From there, you will be able to iterate on or
create a better, more effective solution for your business.

To make the most of this two-day bootcamp, come prepared with a pain point or
problem your company is experiencing (or we will identify one) to tackle together.
Following this bootcamp, you will become the champion of Design Thinking within your
organization, leading the charge when it comes to framing and solving problems
creatively, and shaking up your organization’s product offerings.

This workshop will be held at 208 Main Street, Yarmouth Nova Scotia, B5A 1C6. Lunch will be provided.
