Why Design Thinking Starter

Learn the basics of the design thinking mindset and tools from scratch. We designed this program as an experiential workshop that teaches basic theory and involves hands-on practice.

Design thinking is a creative problem-solving approach, a way of thinking and working. We will be your guide and we will provide you with a collection of practical collaboration methods to use not only for your business, but in your life, family, community, and society as a whole!

Design Thinking Starter Goes Well Beyond Your Basic Training or Online Course!

You will apply the design thinking process to a real business problem to generate user-centric solutions.

Design thinking is a non-linear, iterative process that teams use to understand their users, challenge assumptions, redefine problems and create innovative solutions to prototype and test with final users.
