Some words from our happy Boot Campers

Melissa Ross Coles.jpg

For me (bootcamp) was really great. I'm setting up a human-centred design capability for Coles, and it was important for me to understand the process of DT and be part of that process - not just understanding words and theory, but also the practical application as well. The learnings were really practical and it means I can now mentor the process as it's unfolding here.

I think the major thing to come out was to really understand the problem and to really solve the consumer's problem.  That part is probably the most important part that we'll take away… We are now aware that we now need to drill down to ensure that research is done.

I really liked the different exercises… the story board and the different ways to present your solutions back.  I really enjoyed some of the tools in the boot camp with examples and experiences shared as well.  I was able to learn a lot.

Beatriz Affonso,
Program Lead, Think Talent
