about

"It is a common misconception that design thinking is new. Design has been practised for ages: monuments, bridges, automobiles, subway systems are all end-products of design processes. Throughout history, good designers have applied a human-centric creative process to build meaningful and effective solutions." source reference: Design Thinking 101 by Vijay Kumar.

"Design Thinking" - It is likely that you heard of this term or read these words but couldn't quite understand what they meant. Perhaps you know their meaning, but when trying to speak of the concept to your colleagues or manager, you found it hard to explain it.

Instead of explaining the meaning of design (which is, simply put, a human-centred approach to innovation), we would like to engage with you in a hands-on experience where you will be introduced to the mindset of a designer; you'll learn how to think and solve challenges as a designer does.

Designers thing whilst they are "doing". They think and build things simultaneously.  If you ever wondered why designers love post-it notes and sharpies, this is why. In the process of understanding a problem, designers use co-creating and prototyping as tools to do so and, after that, solving the problem is no big deal.

Design Thinking is not only a method but also a philosophy that can be applied to nearly any endeavour, business problem or social challenge.

Design Thinking 101 is a program that will guide participants through a design thinking process, step-by-step. To be considered successful, innovative products or services have to solve these three key dimensions: Desirability, Feasibility, and Viability.

who is
this course for

  • For people with no Design Thinking looking to understand the method
  • For people with basic Design Thinking knowledge, who want to further their skills
  • For seasoned professionals looking for a fresh look into innovation
  • For people who want to learn a new model of collaborative work
  • For young professionals in search of skills that allow career growth in a strategic way
  • why is this
    course different?

    This is an extremely hands-on course in which participants will understand the sequencing of Design Thinking by working on a project that will constantly challenge their preconceptions and the status quo. By being immersed in a 6-hour-long Design Thinking process, participants will ignite their creativity and muscle and tap into their creative muscle memory - an ability that, once learnt, they will be able to access at any time in their every day lives.
