We strongly believe in ‘Learning by Doing’, so the DesignThinkers Bootcamp will be a high energy and hands-on event. You’ll be challenged to work in small teams on a real case and learn to work with Service Design and Design Thinking tools like Personas, Cultural Probes, Customer Journey Mapping, Stakeholder Mapping, Value Network Mapping, Prototyping, Business Modeling, Road Mapping and more. Moreover, a focus of this program will be on exploring the questions how to integrate these tools in an organization and how to create buy-in within an organization and with your sponsors.
The end result is aimed at a transformation of the participants, knowledge of tools and methods, a deep understanding of the value of design, and professional & personal growth.OVERVIEW DESIGNTHINKERS BOOTCAMP PROGRAM
