Design Thinking is a framework for innovation that can unlock business value. It is a creative problem-solving method that begins with understanding people’s unmet needs, then exploring and prototyping solutions to create innovative products, services, processes and business across any sector (public, private and social). It has been used by many organizations to minimize risks of innovation, create a user-centric strategy, design better solutions, reduce costs of innovation and delight customers.

Design Thinking has revolutionised the business and creative worlds by helping people bridge the gap between business feasibility, viability and user desirability.

The Design Thinking Online is your passport to innovation

This course aims to increase the creative and innovation potential of people, teams and organisations. We do this through a structured, human-centred approach to innovation that teaches not only the skills and tools needed, but also a new mindset to help you approach challenges from a holistic and human perspective.
