Behavioural by Design Masterclass.

From policy makers in the UK Cabinet Office to experience designers in Silicon Valley, the fields of behavioural science and human-centred design have rapidly emerged as the most sought skills for developing innovative solutions.
The concept of ‘nudge’, as popularised by nobel laureate and behavioural economist Richard Thaler, showed how small psychological changes can make a big impact on decision making. This masterclass dives into decades of research and case-studies in the field of applied behavioural science. We embed these learnings into the design thinking process to make these tools more accessible for you.

You will walk out with the knowledge, insights and toolkits to create behaviour change solutions in your organisation.

Requirements. This course is open for anyone with a curiosity in human behaviours. No prior knowledge in the field of psychology or behavioural economics required.

→ Senior leaders and entrepreneurs
→ Service design teams
