An Introduction to Design Thinking


The desire to enhance your problem solving skills
An open mind
Some paper and a pencil


Design Thinking is an iterative process that seeks to understand the user, challenge assumptions, and define problems in a manner that identifies alternative strategies and solutions that may not be readily apparent. Design Thinking is also a mindset–a way of see the world around you–that uses a human-centric approach to solving problems.In this class “An Introduction to Design Thinking”, you will learn:The 5-step approach to problem solving originally developed at Stanford’s Hasso Plattner Institute of DesignStrategies for using the five steps (Empathize, Define, Ideate, Prototype, and Test)The three major design constraints–Desirability, Feasibility and Viability–and how they interactTactics for integrating data visualization into the design thinking processKano’s Model of Customer SatisfactionThe pitfalls of unconscious biasesHow prototyping throughout the design process lowers your costs and risksAnd much more!”An Introduction to Design Thinking” is your starting point for adding a new dimension to your problem solving skills. Beyond what’s just technologically possible, beyond what’s just good for your business, Design Thinking gives you the tools you need to see through your customers eyes and develop solutions that will truly meet their needs.
