Productive by Design™ is our holistic, four-part productivity training program.

Each of the four workshops stands on its own, and together they provide an integrated framework of Design-Driven Productivity, integrating powerful design methods in a human-centered approach to knowledge work. 

The program can be delivered in conjunction with speaking engagements, 1-on-1 and small group coaching, and organizational consulting.
