A step-by-step framework to designing behavioral interventions that work
Take it to the next level
If you’re reading this page, you’re probably already familiar with behavioral economics and nudging. You know about the power nudging has to change human behavior for the better, and have heard many examples of it in action. You’re probably curious to try it for yourself!
Our self-paced course will guide you in designing your own behavioral intervention: you’ll gain both the knowledge and concrete tools to design nudges for different situations you encounter at work or in your private life. The course workbook will help you design and test your nudge following our step-by-step BOOST model, while our videos and quizzes will guide you through the most cutting edge knowledge of the subject matter. Together, these will ensure you can design interventions that really work. Within days, you will be able to see your first nudge in action!
We’ve developed this course based on years of scientific research, our experience applying behavioral science in practice, and having trained hundreds of executives on behavioral economics. This online course allows behavioral science enthusiasts to take the next step and try out nudging in their environment!
This course is for you, if:
- People and human behavior fascinate you; you love observing the world around you and asking questions
- You already understand the basics of how nudging works
- You’ve already learned a lot about behavioral economics, perhaps having read best-sellers “Nudge”, “Thinking Fast and Slow” or “Predictably Irrational”
- You’ve watched and listened to a lot of free content online about behavioral economics
- You are excited about helping people make better decisions
Ready to influence decision-making
and create change in human behavior?
- Identify "nudgeable" situations and behaviors
- Design and implement nudges that help people make choices that are better for them (and you)
- Test the outcomes of your interventions
- Create change in your work or private life - wherever there are people
"A good clear framework on how to apply BE - often that seems to be what's missing. The course was fantastic - enough info to set people on the right path, but not too much to get people overwhelmed with new info."

Dr. Christina Gravert
Our resident behavioral scientist Christina is an Assistant Professor in Behavioral Economics at the University of Copenhagen. She has been researching decision making for close to 10 years, collaborating with local and national governments, non-profits and private companies to run large scale RCTs; and publishing her work in top academic and policy journals. At the university she teaches the Master level course "Behavioral Economics in Action". Christina is a keynote speaker and workshop leader on nudging for behavior change, and has trained hundreds of executives who implement her method to change behavior.
Christina fell in love with behavioral economics when she first read Predictably Irrational by Dan Ariely. Little did she know that less than a year later she would be sitting in a hammock in Dan’s office, and eating Korean Tacos with Richard Thaler in downtown Chicago.
Before co-founding Impactually, Nurit was a management consultant, advising Fortune 500 corporations in marketing and strategy; among other things, she worked with one of Europe’s largest telecom companies to reposition their global brand strategy, based on consumer understanding. She now uses this know-how to influence human behavior toward better decision making, and regularly trains executives on behavioral economics. Nurit also has a Masters in Social Psychology from LSE, and is currently a PhD candidate in Decision-Making and Economic Psychology at Stockholm School of Economics.
Nurit frequently uses nudging in her own life. She's found that some types of nudging work really well on her 3-year-old, but her newborn's decision making is harder to influence.
Impactually is a behavioral science consultancy founded in Stockholm in 2017 to bring cutting-edge behavioral research out of the lab and into the real world where it can be used to create societal and business impact.
We’ve worked with a range of clients across sectors and industries, from the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency to leading retailers and banks. If you want to learn more about us and our work, go here.
