Design Thinking Training

Design Thinking Training

In this inspiring, fast-paced and practical full-day workshop, you will learn Design Thinking directly from the experienced innovation coach Joern Steinz. He is the founder and CEO of the Hamburg based Design Thinking agency Innominds. Since 2014 he has run hundreds of Design Thinking workshops for teams of leading companies such as Audi, AstraZeneca, Lufthansa and Personio.

In the training, Joern will lead you through a simulated Design Thinking process in the shortest possible time and teach you how to identify opportunities for innovation through journey mapping, systematic ideas generation and solution sketching.

As an outcome of the day, you will be able to run your own Design Thinking workshops. In addition to your training experience, you will be equipped with a concrete recipe of templates and step-by-step instructions that you can directly apply to your work.

About the Design Thinking Method

Design Thinking is a structured 5-step process that aims to develop customer-centric solutions. The method was pioneered by David Kelley, the founder of the Silicon Valley based design firm IDEO. In its core, Design Thinking incorporates human behaviour into design to come up with solutions that are more desirable for users. With its method, IDEO has created thousands of break-through inventions, including the first computer mouse from Apple and the first stand-up toothpaste tube. IDEO may be the most influential product design company in the world. Over the years IDEO got asked to apply its approach also to other areas than product design. Hence, Design Thinking has evolved into a universal problem-solving technique for any area of life.
