July 30, 2017 – Phoenix One Knowledge Solutions has added a new offering to its training portfolio with the addition of Design Thinking and User Experience workshops. This is a result of the partnership with On-Off Group, a training consulting company that specializes in helping companies solve problems through User Experience and Design Thinking.

The partnership will not only give Phoenix One’s clients and prospects access to design thinking and UX/UI trainings but potentially design thinking consulting services as well. On-Off Group in turn will support Phoenix One with high quality training content and modern approaches to teaching design thinking.

Bartolome “Jay” Silayan, President and Managing Director of Phoenix One Knowledge Solutions said, “Our company is dedicated to providing the latest and the best training and consulting solutions to our customers and we are honored to partner with On-Off Group to bring design thinking and user experience workshops to the market. We are thrilled to add On-Off Group in our roster of principals as part of our effort to expand our service offerings”.

The Design Thinking Workshop is a fast paced, hands on and interactive 1-day bootcamp that will take participants through the 5-step design thinking process: emphathize, define, ideate, prototype and test. Ideal for senior management, HR, product management and software development roles, this course will let participants experience a full iteration of the design thinking process.

“We are very excited to partner with Phoenix One and help them bring the design thinking expertise to their clients,” said Philip Smithson, Director of On-Off Group. “This partnership will bring to the market our rich and immersive design thinking workshops that will bring the power of user-centric design to best serve customers".
