Join Ambition Empower!

Ambition Empower is a professional development program for everyone who’s creating innovative products and services, especially if you are in, or are aiming for, some kind of leadership position.

  • Learn straight from the industry leaders. Both in live video meetings, and through their highly curated recommendations on what to read, watch, or listen to, when you have a few minutes to spare.
  • Spend on average as little as 10 minutes per day, and still grow as a professional, and expand your skillset.
  • Expand your network. Meet people with similar challenges, and exchange experiences.
  • A membership gives you access to the whole program, with all the tracks, during one full year.

Our ambition is to empower our members – to help you and your organization to grow, both in capability and confidence. As creators and innovators you are leading the way, and we want to make sure that you have the right tools for the job.

How it works: One year – Unlimited tracks

Ambition Empower consists of a number of tracks. Each track is focusing on a specific area of expertise, such as e.g. Design and Product Leadership. Following a track will, on average, take less than 10 minutes per day, and will help you get ahead, and stay ahead, on the topics that are most important to you.

  • Every track is led by one of the foremost experts within this specific area. We’re talking about THE people who wrote the books and, in many ways, defined the field that we’re all working in.
  • Each of the tracks feature live video sessions together with the track leader on a regular basis. The sessions will focus on timely (or timeless) topics that will help both you and your organization to grow. During these sessions there will be ample of opportunities to discuss these topics with the other members. The sessions are standalone, so you can still attend the next one even if you missed a couple before.
  • Between the sessions the track leaders will provide you with highly curated recommendations on important stuff to watch, read, or listen to, that on average will take you less than 10 minutes per day to finish. This way, you’ll always have something interesting and rewarding to do when you have a few minutes to spare.
  • Finally. Ambition Empower is YOUR program. You get access to ALL of the tracks. Attend as much or as little as you want or have time for. And, of course, you can influence the agenda for each track, and suggest topics that are important to you and your organization.


Our ambition is to empower our members – to help you and your organization to grow, both in capability and confidence. As digital creators and innovators you are leading the way, and we want to make sure that you have the right tools for the job.


So far we’ve only announced two of the tracks, but… WOW! Imagine learning more about Design and Product Leadership from KIM GOODWIN! And learning about Strategy and Design Research from SUSAN WEINSCHENK!

More tracks will be added in august. This is just the beginning.

Design + Product Leadership

Regardless of whether your focus is design or product, your job as a leader is to improve the organization’s ability to deliver the right experience. Your organization is a unique combination of life stage, industry, culture, skill levels, structure, resources, and other factors. As a leader, you have a unique combination of strengths that make some situations easier than others. Rather than giving you a single recipe for success, this track will focus on choosing and applying the right ingredients, wherever you are.

The Design + Product Leadership track will continually adapt to the needs of the members, but likely topics include:

  • Facilitating & making better decisions
  • Adapting your team’s approach to the organization’s context & culture
  • Influencing organizational values
  • Defining & applying human-centered metrics
  • Making hiring more effective
  • Coaching people at multiple levels
  • Design Ops for scaling processes & teams
  • Influencing stakeholders outside of your team
  • Knowing your strengths as a leader (and when to lean on others)
  • Making sure your role and career are sustainable for YOU


Kim Goodwin is the author of the bestselling book, Designing for the Digital Age. She is a Design & Product leadership consultant and executive, providing creative leadership and management consulting for Fortune 500s as well as startup clients in varied industries, including healthcare, aviation, retail, communication, financial services, consumer, enterprise, automotive, IT, and other industries.

Strategy ❤︎ Design Research

Most designers and decision-makers would agree that research and discovery is important to design innovative and useful products and services. But few stakeholders realize the full potential. Many organizations fall into the error of doing the same type of research over and over.

In order to unleash the power of design research for continuous innovation, we have to combine methods from qualitative research, quantitative research, and theories from behavioral psychology. We must also establish processes and deliverables that meet the needs of executive decision makers, designers, and development teams.

In this track we will explore new ideas and methods for planning and conducting design research and discovery, so that you can help your organization to create more innovative solutions at a faster pace.

The Strategy ❤︎ Design Research track will continually adapt to the needs of the members, but likely topics include:

  • How to get executive stakeholders to think of research as a strategic tool
  • Most mental processing occurs unconsciously. So how do we improve research protocols to get more accurate answers to our questions?
  • How do you calculate ROI for your research plans?
  • How and why to work with specific metrics in your research
  • The benefits and the challenges of using continuous discovery
  • How to quantify qualitative data, even with few participants
  • Going beyond the interview – Including interactive activities during moderated research protocols to reach deeper insights
  • How to set learning goals for your research to drive your methods and protocol decisions
  • How to recruit “hard to get” participants – innovative ideas for recruiting
  • How to get stakeholder buy-in to the research plan ahead of time, and why this is so critical


Susan Weinschenk has a Ph.D. in Psychology, and is the Chief Behavioral Scientist and CEO at The Team W, Inc, as well as an Adjunct Professor at the University of Wisconsin, Stevens Point.
