Design Thinking: The only online course with real practice
What is this Design Thinking course about
Design Thinking is a process that you can learn and a skill that you can master with practice and that will help you to be more emphatic and creative. With this course you will understand why empathy and flexibility are crucial to improve or create better products, services, processes or business models. Also how to prepare a workshop, lead participants and deal with conflict by using the Design Thinking tools.
Design Thinking is much more that one framework to follow a process, while applying Design Thinking and without even realizing, we are improving other skills such as:
- Creativity and critical thinking, as we are training our left and right brain with convergent and divergent thinking
- Team work and conflict management, that is why a framework helps us to learn techniques to deal with people’s egos, democratize and prioritize ideas and learn with data analysis
- Being agile and time management, since we use time boxing for every tool
Within the course, you will find extra materials and a challenge, that you can share in our Slack community, getting also inspired by other people’s cool ideas.
Remember, 80% of success is just getting started!
After completing the course, you have the opportunity to participate in a real virtual workshop where we use challenges provided by NGO partners. You can participate as a team member, but we also train you and give you the chance to become a facilitator.
