Are you looking to develop your creativity and problem-solving skills?

With the rise of technology and increasing competition in the job market, having a creative mind can set you apart from the rest and open up new opportunities. Companies like Apple, Airbnb, and Amazon, apply Design Thinking because of its effectiveness in solving complex problems and driving innovation.

But it's not just about landing a job – having design thinking skills can help you navigate any challenge life throws your way. By learning to approach problems with empathy, creativity and a growth mindset, you will be equipped to tackle any problem with a unique and innovative solution.

Here's the Masterclass Roadmap

This 3-week design thinking and innovation masterclass will give you hands-on experience in the design thinking process, helping you develop your own problem-solving and innovation skills.

Week 1: Discover & Define

You will learn & practice the first steps of design thinking. The first step, discovery, is what most solutions and businesses overlook! It will enable you to understand the real problem through the users' perspective! After discovery comes and based on the findings made, we will define the problem.

Week 2: Ideate & Innovate

In the second session, you will learn and practice different ideation methods and learn how to innovate solutions. You will be challenged to unleash your inner creative problem solver! This is where your own innovation journey begins.

Week 3: Prototype & test

Then congratulations, you have validated it! At the end of this session, you will have an innovative solution that proves your mastery of design thinking!
