In-House Workshops

We offer customized training services for organizations to provide teams with comprehensive training. Workshops can be tailored to a specific area of interest or cover an already-established curriculum.

Charette Facilitation 

We want to help you find feasible solutions to achieve product certification. Charettes are kick-off meetings to help you define strategic goals to guide the team through the Living Product Certification process. We can review your product at critical points during the product development cycle such as during beta testing, manufacture retooling, supply chain innovation or wherever there is an opportunity to rethink the direction of a product and how it is made.

Product Design Guidance  

Fine-tune your process to ensure that you’re on the path toward  Living Product Challenge compliance. We’ll work together in a private review with the manufacturer’s design or product development team 
to learn how the product accounts for each Imperative of the Living Product Challenge.
