Introduction to Design Thinking

Design Thinking has become an extremely popular approach to problem-solving—not only among designers, but across all areas of business. A Design Thinking workshop will spark innovation, foster a user-centric mindset, and get cross-functional teams working together towards a common goal.

“Design thinking is a human-centered approach to innovation that draws from the designer’s toolkit to integrate the needs of people, the possibilities of technology, and the requirements for business success.” — TIM BROWN, CEO OF IDEO

The workshop will be hands-on, friendly and interactive.
A high-intensity, short-format introduction to fundamentals of design thinking for participants will be offered.
Participants will tackle a real design project using some of the most instrumental design thinking methods that has been pioneered.

To break it down, Design Thinking is an iterative process in which we seek to understand the user (person), challenge assumptions, and redefine problems to identify solutions that might not be instantly apparent with our initial level of understanding.

Design Thinking Phases

There are many variants of the Design Thinking process in use today, and they have from three to seven phases, stages, or modes. However, all variants of Design Thinking are very similar.

In the workshop we will cover :

Empathize — with your users ( Empathy Mapping)
Define — your users’ needs, their problem, and your learnings
Ideate — by challenging assumptions, go crazy on innovating solutions
Prototype — to start creating solutions (you could use pen and paper, or any software that could help showcase your idea)
Test — test your solutions, gather more feedback, reiterate!

The content and methodology are intended to expose Participants to fundamental skills they need to succeed in real life.
A high-intensity, short-format introduction to fundamentals of design thinking for participants will be offered.


Introduction to Design Thinking: Origin, why has DT become so popular, showcases, explanation of the process, key success factors, 2 x 1 minute exercices with audience to boost creative confidence. Brief overview of workshop activities.

Exploration Phase: Presentation of the “How might we question” to the team and the respective context of the problem. Obligatory out of the building phase

Ideation (diverge phase) = systematic approaches to come up with as many ideas as possible

Indeed, Design Thinking can be applied to all areas of business, and a Design Thinking workshop can therefore be useful for everyone—from marketing, product, and sales, right through to the C-level. Let’s consider the benefits of a Design Thinking workshop in more detail.
