Masterclass Design Thinking

Internalize the Design Thinking Methodology!

This two day course is building up on the learnings from the Introduction into Design Thinking course. It dives deeper into the Design Thinking Cycle and you apply the DT Cycle to a real life challenge.

The challenge will be around a specific topic. You will practice each step of the Design Thinking cycle, including real user interviews and testing of prototypes with real users. The first day starts with defining a concrete challenge within the specific topic. You will do extensive needfinding during the first half of the day. The second half of day one concentrates on structuring your findings from the needfinding. As a last step you will brainstorm some ideas for the identified needs.

On day two you will prototype two of the ideas you’ve come up with. You will then test these ideas with real users and redefine your product depending on the feedback you got.

You'll walk away having...

  • Design Thinking: Internalized professional DT skills and tools which you can apply in your daily work routine
