Design Thinking

Design Thinking is one of the most well-recognized methodologies for innovation. As design thinkers, we begin by focusing on the human experience. We embrace diversity, radical collaboration, and ambiguity. All while learning through rapid prototypes and failure. We also have tons of serious fun.

Compassionate Innovation & Mindfulness

We believe deeply in the melding of the human heart and mind. As such, we're tremendous believers of the power of contemplative practices—such as mindfulness and compassion meditation—to help people lead more meaningful lives and organizations pursue more impactful endeavours. All while making the world increasingly harmonious, peaceful, and sustainable.

The Design Sprint

The Design Sprint is an innovation process celebrated by companies like Google and Facebook. It borrows tools from Design Thinking, Business Strategy, and Lean Startup—packed into a real-life process that any team can use to tackle critical business challenges in just five days.

Creative Leadership Development Programs

We work hand-by-hand with our clients to help them develop long-term, 21st-century leadership capabilities. Our corporate training programs consist of world-class learning experiences that help shift individual mindsets and change organizational cultures. The programs incorporate empirically proven, cutting-edge pedagogical, leadership, and innovation tools originating from Stanford and other leading universities.


Pracademy's Why?

Change and innovation starts when humans become more mindful and identify their compassionate and creative confidence. We offer practical learning experiences that make this happen.  

We help corporations, governments, universities and startups to connect deeply with their customers and employees. The results are products, services, and processes that help people lead better lives.


Next-level Innovation Training

Pracademy stands out in the Norwegian and global educational and training spaces as an organization that offers highly personalized, disruptive, and cutting-edge learning experiences. Our focus, to stimulate personal and organization-level mindshifts by implementing the most state-of-the-art teaching methods and innovation methodologies, has set us apart.

The proof is in the pudding: We've been hired by the two leading educational and training institutions in Norway—NHH and NTNU—to launch the most popular, well-received, and successful training programs available. We've also been contracted by Europe and Asia's top corporations to help them implement design thinking and other leading creative leadership and digital competence methods in order to help them grow.
