Workplace training in design methods and frameworks is a consistent area of practice for many designers. While many large organisations find increasing value in design they also struggle to recruit designers. Training existing staff bridges that gap. This presentation examines the questions people asked in more than 120 hours of design and design thinking training delivered to professionals in a large organisation in October and November 2022. Implications for design training, for explaining design and for design practice as discussed.
