2) Design Thinking – a Problem Solving Framework - dr Monika Hajdas

Course description: Design thinking is about finding fresh, creative solutions to problems, in a way that puts people and their needs first. Instead of starting with a problem, design thinking starts with observation. It’s led by an understanding of the culture and the context of a problem (what people need), rather than the problem itself. Focused on listening, user empathy, whole-brain thinking, collaboration, and experimentation, design thinking can be applied in any field and business sector. It is a useful and universal skill that helps professionals collaborate in multidisciplinary teams on solving complex problems. This intensive two-day workshop will let you experience the whole process of this creative approach by immersing you in class discussions and team exercises. During workshop you will learn how to solve complex challenges through the process of structured design thinking.
