About the course
Design thinking is not an exclusive property of designers—all great innovators in literature, art, music, science, engineering, and business have practiced it. Design thinking can help us systematically extract, teach, learn and apply human-centered techniques to solve problems in a creative and innovative way – in our designs, in our businesses, in our countries, in our lives.
Design thinking is an iterative process in which we seek to understand the user, challenge assumptions, and redefine problems in an attempt to identify alternative strategies and solutions that might not be instantly apparent. Design Thinking is extremely useful in tackling problems that are ill-defined, by re-framing the problem in a human-centric way. Many of the world’s leading brands, such as Apple, Google, Samsung and GE, have rapidly adopted the design thinking approach.
In this 16-hour workshop, you will learn to:
- Develop idea thinking, i.e., ideation in one’s mind in its purest form, through design or imagination briefs
- Design products, services and tasks (or anything else)
- Adopt a teachable and application centric approach across all levels or jobs or functions in a company
- Develop comparative thinking of dissimilar ideas that drive industry disruption
- Understand the business value of design
- Understanding your users
- Defining your users’ needs, problems, and constraints
- Ideation by challenging assumptions
- Prototyping to create and test solutions
