Thousands of participants have experienced our Design Thinking Facilitation. We now would like to share our knowledge and tools so you can become a Design Thinking Facilitator.
You have taken the Design Thinking module in our Academy, or elsewhere and would like to start facilitating your own Design Thinking sessions. Then this blended programme is for you.
The programme runs over the course of three months. It consists of :
Month 1: Four Workshops run as Virtual Instructor Led Training every Friday 9.30-1.00pm.
Month 2 : Practice Facilitation and Reflection
Month 3 : Two Coaching sessions , one group one individual, focusing on participant's needs
The Programme ends with a Personal Development Plan.
The participants will be able to facilitate Design Thinking, champion the Design Thinking approach, and be catalysts for Human Centred Innovation.
Upon completion of the program, the participants will be empowered to:
