Health Innovation & Delight Thinking Ideation, Workshops & Sprints
"First we energise your team with an ultra-inspiring keynote, then we unleash the magic with a Delight Thinking creative process" - Prof Dr Koen Kas
Koen Kas, Frank Boermeester and the Healthskouts team have developed a unique Delight Thinking methodology and workshop design that can take your team all the way from ‘white page’ ideation to the development of tactical roadmaps for bringing extreme Delight to your customers and stakeholders.
We can tailor the workshop format to the needs of your team and kick off the workshop with an inspiring presentation to feed preliminary ideas and insights into the creative session.

Approach: Inspiration + Delight Thinking
Our workshops are designed to deliver unique, innovative & actionable solutions to any health challenge. Solutions that are grounded in your team’s knowledge and working reality, but that also tap into the most cutting edge technology and innovation out there. As health innovators, we have thought hard in recent years about how we can combine ultra-inspirational content with the best creative thinking techniques. The result is our Delight Thinking workshop method, where in just one day, we bring your team from a white page to a set of highly ambitious but actionable solutions.
It starts with the participants: we involve 6 to 20 of your colleagues and stakeholders – people who have relevant expertise and the remit to take ideas further beyond the workshop.
The workshop itself is split into two parts. First, Koen Kas delivers an energising presentation focused squarely on the workshop topic: think innovative cases, best practices, trends, technological evolutions and digital solutions. A super inspirational outline of what is possible, today and tomorrow. We also tap into our world-leading library of digital solutions and best practices.
In the second part of the workshop, we facilitate a highly structured group process to tap into the collective knowledge and creative potential of all the participants. The workshop’s “Delight Thinking” methodology is based on scientifically validated creative thinking methods. In this way, we conclude the workshop with a number of very concrete action points. Equally important is the strong commitment and ‘sense of ownership’ that is created through the workshop dynamics. This ensures that the workshop results do not gather dust, but become the launchpad for new initiatives that you can start working on immediately after the workshop.
We look forward to working with you!
