What You Will Learn
Introduction to Design Thinking which is also known as Human Centered Design. Thinking like a designer can transform the way organizations develop products, services, processes and strategy. This approach brings together what is desirable from a human point of view with what is technologically feasible and economically viable. It also allows participants who are not trained as designers to use creative tools to address a vast range of challenges. 

At the end of the course, participants will be able to:
  • Think like a designer to transform how an individual/organisation develop products, services, processes and strategy.
  • View ideas from a human point of view with what is feasible technologically and viable economically.
  • Understand what a real problem is and how to solve it keeping it human-centred.
  • Experience and practice with techniques and approaches to adopt what is effective for organisation
  • Better understanding of audiences   ​needs, user journeys and business needs - moving from strategic thinking to creative execution.
  • Allows individuals who are either design-trained or not designed-trained to use creative tools to address a vast range of challenges.
  • Communicate complex professional issues clearly to specialist and non-specialist audiences.
