About FITS

BOOSTING ORGANIZATION CHANGE FOR SUSTAINABLE LEADING BUSINESS

The Future Innovation Tailor-Made School (FITS) is a project that stemmed from the Istituto Europeo di Design (IED) in Barcelona to cater for their training needs and aid in the cultural shift organisations are undergoing to survive future VUCA scenarios.

As IED pursues its global expansion and furthers its sound teaching experience, the Future Innovation Tailor-Made School (FITS) brings solutions based on design‑driven innovation to achieve specific results, helping organisations to overcome challenges and enhance their competitiveness, operational efficiency, R&D processes and digital transformation and redefine their sustainability strategies and CSR.

To achieve this goal, FITS is introducing a series of creative and innovative methodologies drawing on Design Thinking and System Thinking. These methodologies bring out an organisation’s full potential in terms of talent, co-creation and innovation – i.e. the collective intelligence that every person and every institution owns.

In line with these new methodologies, FITS is launching a proposal for learning organisations that goes one step beyond the typical consultant/client relational model, introducing a new vision of in‑company relations with a series of special made-to-measure programmes designed in close collaboration with the beneficiaries of those learning processes. Our co-creation companies come from the worlds of fashion, mobility, visual communication, venues, services and innovation. Our main aim is to generate new insight for organisations to bring them innovative, applicable and measurable added value right from the start, using ongoing self‑assessment tools so in-house decision makers can measure the scope and outcome of the FITS programme actions in their professional surroundings.

Campus FITS

Campus FITS powered by IED is a virtual, hybrid and physical space where professionals, companies and universities from all over the world will be able to live transformative academic experiences linked to design together with experts in innovation.

Campus Future Innovation Tailor-Made School (FITS), offers different training programmes, as well as personalised interaction and networking opportunities, for those interested in design-driven innovation in key sectors of the contemporary economy: tourism, the green transition of mobility, the digital transformation, and the circular economy, among others.

Building on the Istituto Europeo Di Design’s more than 25 years of experience, creative methodologies will be developed to generate innovation (challenge-based learning), as well as specialised webinars, blogs and events with exclusive content created by those aligned with the new demands, challenges and opportunities of a society that transforms with every second.

Online capsules and courses focused on the Silver Economy, tourism, well-being and health are just a taster of the programmes that can be designed by one of leading design, fashion and trend institutions in Europe and Latin America. They will enable immersive learning and intensive training through design methodologies to effectively manage the new challenges brought about by the 21st century.

Companies and professionals who wish to evolve and adapt quickly can look to Campus FITS to provide appropriate, flexible learning solutions that are easy to update and are able to measure the impact generated in the organisation, by way of a diverse, sophisticated and multicultural platform.
