The purpose of the DSI Toolbox workshop training is to facilitate entrepreneurial problem solving associated with new product development (NPD). The DSI Toolbox consists of a set of decision-support tools used in front-end planning of NPD.

The short courses (two workshops) are taking place on site in Helsinki. They will also be made accessible remotely via live streaming, so it will be possible to listen to the entire workshop presentations, yet remote attendees cannot provide feedback to ongoing team-activities [day (1) 16:30 – 18:00 + day (2) 13:00-14:30].
In this way, we would like to make sure that online attendees can have a deeper understanding of the workshop contents, and maybe interested in participating on-site in the next workshop editions.
