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.
Imagine a way for you and your senior colleagues to not just get on top, but stay on top, of the topics that really matter; Design and Product Leadership, Strategic Design Research, DesignOps, Design Thinking and Service Innovation, Ethics, Behavioral Design, Prototyping, Business Design, and more.
Imagine meeting some of the industry’s very best, helping you in the right direction. Imagine having insightful conversations with others who share the same challenges as you. Imagine this happening every week. Imagine where that would take you. Imagine where that would take your organization.
A membership gives you access to ALL the tracks during one full year. Each track is focusing on a specific area of expertise, such as e.g. Design and Product Leadership. Each track will, on average, take less than 10 minutes per day to follow, and will help you get ahead, and stay ahead, on the topics that are most important to you.
Ok, here goes:
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 one of the tracks, but… WOW! Imagine learning more about Design and Product Leadership from KIM GOODWIN! More tracks will be added in the coming weeks and months. This is just the beginning.
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.
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. Earlier in her career, Kim was VP of Design & General Manager at Cooper, a leading design and strategy agency in San Francisco, for 12 years.
The Design + Product Leadership track will continually adapt to the needs of the members, but likely topics include:
Most designers, and decision-makers, agree that research 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 fully realize the power of design research for innovation, we have to combine data from qualitative research, quantitative research, and theories from behavioral psychology. It must also meet the needs of executive decision makers, designers, and development teams. Methods and protocols are evolving constantly. In this track we will continuously explore new ideas and new methods for planning and conducting design research in the organization.
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. Susan consults with Fortune 1000 companies, start-ups, governments and non-profits, and is the author of 8 books that have been translated to more than 10 languages, including 100 Things Every Designer Needs To Know About People, Neuro Web Design and How To Get People To Do Stuff.
What Susan doesn’t know about the intersection of Strategy, Behavioral Psychology, and Design Research is simply not worth knowing.
The Strategy ❤︎ Design Research track will continually adapt to the needs of the members, but likely topics include:
