Event description

Description

Spring2’s Design Thinking training sessions will awaken your design mindset and teach you how to solve problems from a solutions-focused and action-oriented perspective.

Design Thinking is a user-centric, solutions-based methodology and way of thinking. It provides the structure and methods for solving complex problems that can be used to disrupt traditional approaches to citizen service delivery in a collaborative and creative way. By leveraging an inclusive problem-solving approach to identifying alternatives and reducing limiting ideas and constraints, it provides a deep understanding of user needs and allows departments and individuals to deliver on “the possible”.

Design Thinking methodology includes five (5) phases; Empathize, Define, Ideate, Prototype, and Test. Throughout the course, we will guide participants through each phase and the various tools and methods that can be applied to work with clients, citizens, and in life. Various case studies identifying solid Design Thinking approaches will be reviewed and used to ensure a deep understanding among the participants.
