This course will teach you the method to rapidly develop new products, pitches and roadmaps and build an innovation culture in your business and leadership team.
Innovation transforms the way people develop products, services, processes—and even strategy.
For the companies disrupting the market today, design is no longer just a “stage” in the business process — it is the language of business.
If you want to help jolt your company out of hibernation, the people and teams around you will need to adopt habits of vulnerability, empathy, and curiosity.
What clients say:
"Montgomery's Design Thinking workshop gave us immediate and tangible results, projects and ideas we have decided to implement into our products!
Robb managed to unlock the creative and innovative potential of our staff - it was impressive.
Not only did we have impact through proposals created during his three-day visit, but we also saw an impact on the motivation and loyalty of our employees.
Enabling our team for this kind of "work play" meant enabling a competitive edge for our company and acquiring a new kind of necessary literacy.
This is why, in the end, we decided to provide all of Robb's online courses to all of our employees - as a mandatory educational program."

The method Robb uses for this immersive course is one he has developed over the last 10 years. It employs the best practices from GV Design Sprints, Maestro planning and the Stanford D-School model.
