Designers - where do you learn all the workshop stuff?

Working with some talented designers coming from design agencies, I’m definitely feeling the imposter syndrome that I barely know how to run an effective workshop. The only workshop format I know is Google Design Sprint.

I’m curious if there’s any good resource or books or course I can use. Any recommendations? Also open to multi-day training if the expense is not crazily high.

    Check out IBM design thinking (Google for it). IBM was behind on a lot of things but they somehow caught the design wave early and have been operationalizing design thinking workshops since 2014.

    Gamestorming by Dave Grey is where I’ll gather pieces to build my workshops. There’s another one i can’t remember the title of. Working with a lot of agencies has also helped me refine my process (Ideo, Pivotal, most of them have their stuff documented). It’s been a lot of learn by doing.

    Depending on your specialty, there are a lot of good conferences and meetup groups you can go to.
