This is Doing: Remote Flexible Training

STBY is proud to be one of the founding partners of the new online training platform This is Doing. Anyone interested in learning more about innovation, design and research will probably find more exciting opportunities here than they may actually have time for. As the site says: ‘Learning new skills doesn’t have to mean taking time off work. We provide remote, flexible training options to help you grow your design and innovation capabilities’. So be aware, as you might end up doing this anytime and anywhere…

Understanding the heart and soul of design and innovation

This is Doing was initiated by roughly the same bunch of serial innovators behind the bestsellers ‘This is Service Design Thinking’ and ‘This is Service Design Doing’, as well as the start up More than Metrics and the ever expanding online network ThisisHCD. Do we need to say more?

This is Doing not only offers online courses, but also coaching and mentoring for personal professional development. The team behind this new online offering consists of industry thought-leaders in the areas of experience design, service design, product management, human-centered design, user experience, design research, and design thinking. Over 15 years in the global design and innovation industry brought us all together. We have different perspectives, but a similar vision and level of  expertise. 

5 different courses on offer from STBY

Especially for This is Doing, we have developed 5 courses on state of the art and contemporary topics, such as:

As you can see, most of these courses will be co-delivered with partners from our REACH Network for global Design Research. So you will get perspectives and experiences from all over the globe.
