The Creative Tools with Implications & Applications Business Facilitation
Solve your own real business challenge(s) using our SID model with additional design thinking tools.

This session is all about Implications & Applications. In this session our executive level facilitator walks the team through a series of well sequenced models (critical thinking / design thinking / CPS) to explore real ill-defined, tricky problems and/or use the model to strategically look at future thinking challenges.


  • Starting with a real issue, additional design thinking tools and models provided will assist groups in getting to a real solutions.
  • The more “generic tools” traditionally used in a Design Thinking process (Agile, Ideation, MVP, Empathy mapping, Persona technic etc.) are introduced in this session and placed in context to be used in the Tirian’s 4 phases to solve actual live “wicked” workplace issues.
  • Finish with a final assignment and pitch to present new ideas and recommendations.

Solving Wicked Problems for our Clients

Here are some of the ways our programs have helped market leaders across all industries solve their own wicked problems using our SID with design thinking model:

Problems are classified as “wicked” because they are ill-defined or tricky. Here, wicked does not mean malicious. For ill-defined problems, both the problem and the solution are unknown at the outset of the problem-solving exercise. The opposite of this are “tamed” or “well-defined” problems. In this case, the problem is clear and a solution can be reached by applying technical knowledge. All wicked problems carry ambiguities and paradoxes that need resolving.

See our case study where one client (Luxury Hotel – during COVID) made  $750,000 revenue and outperformed their competition by 150%.
