Design Thinking is a human-centred systems approach to develop solutions to complex problems and bring innovative new products or services to market that create social impact. Based on practices that fuel innovation, as researched and developed by IDEO, Apple, Frog Design and Stanford University Design School, design thinking is increasingly used by world leading organisations to drive innovation and solve some of the most intransigent problems. Whether focused on development of new products and services, to address strategic, operational or organisational issues, or social problems, design thinking can revolutionise the way you perceive and resolve these issues. Embedding design thinking as an organisational process will establish innovation as a core part of the culture and 'business as usual' practices. This is a highly interactive course in which you will develop a solid working knowledge of the key stages of the design thinking methodology, plus discover numerous supporting tools and techniques. To consolidate your understanding of the design thinking mindset and key methodological tools, you will progress a 'design challenge' project during the course with a view to developing an innovative solution to a problem or identifying an opportunity through innovation. You leave the course with the immediate ability to apply design thinking approaches to your own situations and organisations.
