The participants will get a thorough understanding of the Diverge/Evaluate/Converge cycle based on Design Thinking Principles - Empathise, Define, Ideate, Prototype and Test.

We will use Design Studio to sketch, present, discuss and refine multiple solutions.

  • Learn how to frame the problem space using the A3 Method or Business Model Canvas.

  • Empathise with the user through discussion of the different types of empathy. Empathy Maps and Personas.

  • Get a thorough understanding of the Diverge/Evaluate/Converge cycle based on Design Thinking Principles.

  • Use rapid sketching to generate as many ideas as possible, evaluate and merge ideas in order reach a set of possible solutions.

  • Participants will work in a team environment and practice ‘active learning’. Students will be able to facilitate their own design studio in their own organisational context.
