Two-day Design Thinking Fundamentals Course


Cost: £975.00 - £1,095.00

Course on the basic understanding of the Design Thinking principles, key tools and terminology. The focus of this course will be on hands-on and ‘Learning-by-Doing’ by using various tools like stakeholder mapping, customer journey mapping and prototyping.

Stakeholder mapping provides you with an overview of the ‘eco-system’ that you are exploring. Stakeholders are people, teams or organisations that directly or indirectly exchange ‘value’. The exchange of value is used as the basis to explore the underlying services provided by the stakeholders

Value network mapping creates insight in the exact values that are being exchanged between stakeholders. Using this tool, you already will get a more detailed insight into the services being provided by the stakeholders

Personas are used as the basis for Customer Journey Mapping. Finding out about the objectives, behavior, attitudes of people is very important for developing improvements or innovations of the services provided.

Customer journey mapping allows us to get a deeper insight into customer needs, perception, experience and motivation. It will answer questions like: What and why are people really trying to achieve? How are they trying to achieve this? What are they experiencing, feeling, while trying to reach the desired outcome?

Service scenarios are used to visualize how a (newly designed) service is being experienced from a customer point of view. Simple visualization techniques are being introduced.

Prototyping is done to be able to test a service concept in a ‘low tech’ environment with relevant stakeholders. Prototyping can be done by building artifacts from cardboard or paper or by using Lego. Also, role play is a powerful way of prototyping.

All tools will be handed out after the session and are free of use.
