The evolution of design has seen it become a discipline no longer limited to the concerns of a singular, specific domain and develop to become a pathway for solving complex, nonlinear problems. Design is becoming a capability-enhancing skill, equipping people with the ability to deal with uncertainty, complexity, and failure.
Throughout the course, you will gain many insights that will enable you to develop a comprehensive understanding of design and the role it can and does play within the innovation landscape. You will leave this course with a set of practical tools and techniques to apply to situations within your own professional context, to translate problems into opportunities and solutions, and ultimately to innovate through design.
By the end of this training course, participants will be able to:
Develop a comprehensive understanding of design and the role
Apply to situations within your own professional context
Translate problems into opportunities and solutions, and ultimately innovate through design.
Suitable for anyone who is curious about design and translating the processes and tools of design thinking into innovative opportunities, explores, apply and practice the design process: think, make, break and repeat.
