Design thinking training

This practical, one-day course will help you fully understand design thinking and the methodology behind it. We'll show you how to apply design thinking to real-world problems to achieve breakthrough solutions.

  • Practical applications of design thinking
    You'll take part in practical exercises to apply your newly learnt techniques. You'll see first-hand how to use design thinking to improve your problem solving skills and bring your ideas to life using prototyping, testing and business modelling
