the course

The Design Thinking Online course aims to increase the creative and innovation potential of people, teams and organisations. We do this through a structured, design centered approach to innovation that teaches the skills needed as well as a mindset shift to help you approach challenges differently.

You’ll learn to see the world from a different perspective in which problems become opportunities for innovation.

Our course revolves around a practical project wherein you will apply the Design Thinking tools and approach.

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