Design Thinking Foundation

The Design Thinking Foundation Programme

Get to know Design Thinking basics and dive into the world of innovation.

The two-day Design Thinking Foundation aims to provide well-founded insights into the Design Thinking process and its characteristics and methods both theoretically and practically. To make Design Thinking tangible and experienceable, its practical application is essential. On the first day, we therefore first enter the world of creativity from the perspective of Design Thinking in order to apply the newly acquired knowledge the next day.

Therefore, we support the knowledge transfer through many small practical applications on the first day and spend the second day on a trial workshop. This is a practical experience of how the theoretical foundation is implemented and how a workshop is planned, carried out and reflected upon. This includes how the course participant can design innovations methodically and user-centered.
