Learning by doing. Several teams (4-6 participants) will work with the active support of experienced practitioners. A serie of theoretical principles, practical exercises and debriefing sessions will be provided to assimilate each phase of the method.
After a short introduction to Design Thinking and splitting up into teams, you’ll quickly learn to empathize with your users by employing some user observation techniques. Sharing your discoveries with your team will help you create a defined persona. You’ll then analyze their journey and produce a point of view based on this user’s individual needs. You can then generate ideas and prototype solutions. Next, you’ll present your prototypes to users to rapidly iterate your solution. Finally, you’ll pitch your prototype to the other teams in a role-play.
We’ll also debrief on the potential of Design Thinking, Service Design and Design Sprint within your own organization.
Certification: an online test can be taken to earn a digital certificate, which can be integrated directly on your LinkedIn profile, certifying your new skills. This certification will give you access to the Facilitator module, which when combined with the Practitioner validation of professional experience, will allow you to organize and facilitate Design Thinker modules yourself.
