Design Thinking Training Program

What is Design Thinking?

Design Thinking is a creative problem solving method pioneered by the Stanford School of Engineering that uses empathy at the heart of its process. The method empowers an individual or team to design tailor-made products, services, systems, and experiences that address real end-users needs.

The Training Program

If you are successful in your application to join the training program, and have paid the USD 100.00 fee, you will be invited to join the 2019 Design Thinking Training Program. Classes will run from April 24th until May 15th 2019, on weekdays only.

During the first two weeks of the program you will learn about the fundamentals of Design Thinking and how it works. The training will equip participants with knowledge and practical experience on how to plan, run and synthesise a user-centered, participative research process.

During the second and final part of the program, you will be placed in a team where you will apply the design thinking skills you have acquired to solve some of our corporate partners' business challenges, and you will present your solutions to their senior team. This will give you an opportunity to apply your skills in the real world.

Upon completion of the Design Thinking Training Program you will be eligible for employment as a Design Thinking Researcher in the ACT Business Growth Program.
