"Taylorized" Design Thinking Training/Facilitation: Expression of Interest

Thank you for reaching out to the Phyllis M. Taylor Center for Social Innovation and Design Thinking (TAYLOR). We promote collaborative creativity for organizations, workplaces, and groups. Depending on our workload and capacity, we can sometimes offer custom "Taylorized" training and facilitation services.  Please read below for information about what we might do and why. We are keen to support your social cause that is consistent with our mission, and to the best of our abilities and capacity.  We seek longer term impact in embodying, exemplifying and promoting positive changemaking. Read here for what these terms mean: We expect our organizational partners to express a sincere willingness to learn "designerly" mindsets, like empathy with users, a beginners mind, learning via rapid prototyping, Yes, And!, and adopting a "bias to action".

Are you still new to the Phyllis M Taylor Center and to changemaking, design thinking, and social innovation?  Before proceeding, be sure to review our website for regular public training events, like the DT & Donuts (public 2 hour workshops: 9/21, 10/15, 11/2, 11/30 2018) and the Fast 48 weekend bootcamp (Nov 2-4 2018).  Learn more at the Taylor Center website:

If you are ready to seek custom "Taylorized" facilitation or training, please proceed. The form below asks you to provide us some information about your organization and specific needs. You don't have to have all the information.

Special note for fall 2018: We have limited capacity for custom activities, owing to other regular courses and trainings that we are already committed to. While we might not be able to accommodate you, we appreciate you reaching out.  Once you do, you can expect:

We will acknowledge receipt of your application within five (5) business days.
We will review your request internally, and ask you some clarifying questions, within three (3) weeks.
We aim to get back to you with a decision within  four to six weeks, and sooner, if possible

If we are unable to handle your request, we may be able to offer recommendations for local trainers and facilitators.
