Also how to prepare a workshop, lead participants and deal with conflict by using the Design Thinking tools.

Design Thinking is much more that one framework to follow a process, while applying Design Thinking and without even realizing, we are improving other skills such as:

– Creativity and critical thinking, as we are training our left and right brain with convergent and divergent thinking

– Team work and conflict management, that is why a framework helps us to learn techniques to deal with people’s egos, democratize and prioritize ideas and learn with data analysis

– Being agile and time management, since we use time boxing for every tool

Within the course, you will find extra materials and a challenge, that you can share in our Slack community, getting also inspired by other people’s cool ideas.

Remember, 80% of success is just getting started!

After completing the course, you have the opportunity to participate in a real virtual workshop where we use challenges provided by NGO partners and we learn by helping.
