The IKEA buildings are designed from the ground up. An average blue and yellow store avaerages 300,000 sq ft. Inside you’ll find a one-way layout which leads customers along the long way. This layout is designed to encourage the customer to see the store in its entirety. IKEA stores also have a Swedish restaurant inside that also serves local food items and a children’s secure playground area. Security guards watch over the kids and parents receive a monitor in case the children need them before they are done shopping. People are known to drive long hours to get to the nearest IKEA store and IKEA accomodates these customers by keeping stores open for longer hours than other traditional furniture stores. Shopping at IKEA becomes a pleasureable outing not chore. Their showroom is a vast set of tasteful displays with intricate details that are all offered for sale.
IKEA has 12 full time designers and over 80 freelancers who concentrate on making affordable, functional and beautiful pieces of furniture. They cater to specific localized market demands and take the host culture of their locations into consideration. IKEA implements the economies of scale model to cut on costs and have their own enviornmentally responsible wood furniture manufacturing company called Swedwood. They have also partnered with 1,300 suppliers in 53 countries to find the most eco-friendly, cost-effective and responsible bargains.
IKEA’s furniture is designed to be assembled by the consumer. The package will include assembly instructions and the tools you need to construct the item. You can do it yourself or there are reasonably priced professionals available to quickly assemble the furniture for you. If you are too busy or don’t feel confident in your assembly skills, you can hire the job done and still spend a significantly lower amount than you would if you bought traditional furniture and had it delivered.
IKEA publishes an annual catalouge in 55 editions in 27 languages for 36 countries that are distributed in stores and by mail. Their Website offers over 12,000 products for bathroom, bedroom, children’s furniture, cooking and kitchen, decoration, dinning, dinning ware, hallway, laundry, lighting, living room, outdoor, secondary storage, small storage, bedding/bathroom/curtain textiles, workspace and youth room.

Advanced Learning Design: “Re-vision” your learning events for greater success using DE
Three-day course for graduates of Learning to Listen, Learning to Teach
You’ve experienced first-hand the transformative value of using Dialogue Education™ (DE) in the workplace, in the field, or in the classroom. Now you can deepen your knowledge of DE even further, and gain a direct and practical benefit: the successful redesign of a specific learning event you have planned – either a current training design or something brand new.
In this rigorous three-day course, you will be asked to bring a learning event you feel could be improved or a learning design you‘d like to create. Collaboratively, using the principles and practices of Dialogue Education, you will:
- work through the 8 steps of design to strengthen or design your learning event
- closely analyze and assess your learning event’s strengths and weaknesses; and- reconstruct the event to be more engaging, accountable, and effectively learning-centered.
Through this course, you will not only leave with a strong DE-based learning event, but also gain deep knowledge and practical methods to guide you in designing more effective learning programs in the future.
On a more global level, this dynamic and focused experience of engaging theory with praxis will re-invigorate your ability to lead and inspir
