“Design Thinking is a human-centred approach to innovation that integrates the needs of people, the possibilities of technology, and the requirements for business success” – Tim Brown, CEO, IDEO.
Our key differentiator is translating the model into individual action plans, and a measurable Return on Investment by connecting new ideas with business realities. In addition to that, organisations benefit from enhanced capability among individual managers to take on new leadership roles and responsibilities, offering alternate career paths and better succession planning.
Our 4-Step Process is as follows:
- Explain the concept of design thinking, process innovation and the various elements associated with the concepts.
- To work with the participants on the various elements of innovation and experience the techniques first-hand.
- To converge the participants into taking on real-life deliverables / challenges in the company and using the tools and techniques learnt to come up with impactful solutions.
- Handholding the participants over a period of time to ensure that the tools and techniques are properly applied, track and monitor progress and to help in achieving desired outcomes.
- Creating and running all your HR systems and processes, throughout the employee’s life-cycle.
- Putting our talent in your company, on a retained basis, who would be back-end supervised and guided by some of the best HR talent in the country.

Branding & Marketing
The first step involves developing a story, communication and positioning for the programme (jointly with your institute and Absolute Spark).
The quality of student intake has adefinitive role to play in the eventual placement process. The selection process usually comprises of the following steps:
1. Group discussions and engagement exercises
2. Personal interviews to assess personality and gravitas
3. Overall assessment and decision-making based on additional criteria like diversity,varied backgrounds,etc
Absolute Spark can support your institute in the last 3 points depending on the Institute policy with a view to ensuring the quality of intake is in line with eventual industry selection criteria.
Post Selection / Pre-Joining
Our research has shown that engagement with selected students from this stage onwards, results in (i) reduced dropouts before the commencement of the course;(ii) a heightened perception of the depth and reach of your Institute in the industry and; (iii) a larger window to provide inputs which are critical for success in their final placements. With this is mind, Absolute Spark proposes to engage with the selected students from Feb onwards till the tine they join, with reference to the following:
1. Provide a comprehensive induction to your Institute, in all its facets
2. Be a single point of contact on behalf of your Institute for queries and issues
3. Provide basic weekly engagement modules up till the time the students join, to keep them warm, interested and also more geared towards the more intense inputs after joining
Post-Joining Creating Student Readliness
Upon joining students will have 3-4 months to prep for placement interviews. Within this window, Absolute Spark will:
1. A realistic evaluation of their personality vis-à-vis role fitment (sales, marketing, analyst, consultant, project manager, etc.) through Lumina Spark or related tools (cost of assessment would be borne by your Institute)
2. Helping with creating resumes: 1 pager, comprehensive and video
3. Training on body language, personality and basic communication
