Design Thinking Crash Course – From Beginner to Practitioner
Take part in the Design Thinking crash course since 2018. This is the brand new English version, based on 2 years of participants’ feedback and the experiences of our live crash courses in Berlin.
Spend around 3 hours to get your certificate:
- 85min core video content (theory lessons + working through an example challenge)
- Additional 105min homework to work through your own Design Thinking Challenge (in parallel to the course) if you want to acquire the Design Thinking Certificate from Responsive Strategy. We are a member of the Design Thinking Association.
This is a step-by-step guide of how to use the Design Thinking approach to solve your challenge in the area of product, service, business, organization or corporate strategy. You will also learn how to facilitate a Design Thinking workshop. You can work on your own challenge parallel to the course or just listen to everything and learn how Design Thinking works using our example challenge.
