SALT Collaboratory Signs On to Support LUMA System Authorized Training Partner Program

The Design Thinking consultancy SALT Collaboratory is one of the first training partners eligible to offer LUMA System certification

    SEATTLE, WA, December 14, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- SALT Collaboratory, a Design Thinking consultancy, is welcomed as one of the first LUMA System training partners in a new pilot program. The program allows independent consultants and organizations steeped in the LUMA System – a framework of 36 human-centered design methods used by organizations around the world – to train others and offer certification as LUMA System practitioners. The LUMA System authorized training partner program is in the early stages of development, but MURAL, which acquired LUMA Institute earlier this year, expects the addition of SALT Collaboratory to help it continue to grow.

"SALT Collaboratory knows the LUMA System inside and out," said Jon West, Head of the MURAL Professional Network. "If you have a business problem, SALT will pick out the right combination of design methods for you to work through a solution. There is no one I would rather have jumpstart this program with us."

SALT Collaboratory creates custom Design Thinking trainings for its clients using the LUMA System, and its consulting arm helps clients unearth hidden insights and create innovative solutions to prioritized challenges. SALT Collaboratory's consultants are deeply knowledgable about the LUMA System and are certified LUMA instructors or practitioners who have trained over 500 participants to date.

"After spending 25 years in management consulting, I knew there had to be a more thoughtful way to work," said SALT Collaboratory founder Hannah Berson. "The LUMA System opened new possibilities to me as a trusted advisor, and I found the methods so powerful that I started my own consultancy. We have been advising clients using the LUMA System for years, and I am honored to be able to officially bestow LUMA System certification to those we train. It feels like a full-circle moment for me."

The LUMA System authorized training partner program will enable more people to learn fundamental collaboration skills. To learn more, contact [email protected].
