Introduction

Instill an understanding of how to use design thinking within your organization. Design Thinking is not about finding the perfect solution to a problem; it’s an exploratory process to find the best possible solution to a problem. Applying the Design Thinking processes involves logic, reasoning, and classic induction and deduction principles.

Our interactive, hands-on learning experience introduces non-designers to the design thinking process and walks them through the steps to effectively problem solve and create solutions. Students will obtain knowledge of how design thinking works and how to apply design thinking tools and techniques to their own work. This comprehensive course is the combination of our Design Thinking Fundamentals and Design Thinking Advanced courses. Let your creativity loose!
