Today's innovation is everyone's business

Did you ever feel like there is more to the problem you are trying to solve? Perhaps what you need is a mindset change. Design thinking is a methodology that enables you to observe, understand, and define a problem while also creating and designing innovative solutions. At every level, in any place, design thinking provides the tools you need to become an innovative thinker and uncover creative opportunities that are there – you're just not seeing them yet.

The Masterclass Roadmap

In this 3-week masterclass you will learn design thinking through practice while also exploring some successful solutions through a design thinking perspective, develop your own innovative solution, foster constant improvement and reflection.

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

In the last session, you will learn and practice prototyping your solution and test its goal achievement and impact. Can your solution stand on its own feet? 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!
