Design Thinking Intensive Bootcamp
"This intense 2 day workshop is intended to communicate, in a practical manner, the foundations of Design Thinking, focusing on not only the iterative design process but also the empathy and prototyping tools that are essential to the methodology.
A practical case study will be used to provide context to the session and it’s expected that participants utilize DT tools to address and solve the design challenge for the duration of the 2 days.
More than an innovation process, Design Thinking is an essentially exploratory process that starts from a problem to a final project, solution or strategy. This workshop is intended to be a hands-on initiation to Design Thinking. To understand the whole process, we understand that students must go through it, exploring and solving a real challenge. For two days, different methodologies, tools and frameworks applied to the practical challenge in question will be explored on the ground."
Strategic decision makers, project or product managers, innovation professionals and other relevant employees from an organization.
