Does your work involve solving problems and making decisions ? Does finding problems make you equally happy ? Do you think, how can I solve big problems and find better solutions? How can I find customized solutions ? How can I find sustainable & holistic solutions ? How can I solve societal challenges ? Are you sometimes unsure how to even start? Design thinking can help.

Design thinking is a human-centered approach for creative problem finding & solving. It was popularized by the Stanford d.school and IDEO, and has been used by organizations around the world to solve knotty (wicked) problems. It is all about understanding systems-processes, your user's (stakeholders) needs and finding and then solving the right problem. By using this human-centered design approach, you can develop and enhance products and services to become truly unique and innovative and at the same time help your user (stakeholders).

This uniquely designed program keeps in view the new trends in learning i.e. small nugget videos for concepts and instructions; backed by DIY, Assignment & Mini-project guiding slides.

This course (Level I) that spans over 10 weeks, and engages approx. 2 to 3 hours/week; is meant to serve as an introduction to the principles of design thinking and touches on ways you can implement it in your workplace, thus it is called a ‘Guide’. The material is best suited for management professionals who are new to design thinking or want a refresher on the core concepts. Luckily, design thinking can be applied to almost any field; no matter what your profession (Marketing, HR, Finance, Operations etc.), design thinking can help you discover and implement the apt solutions to problems and possibilities you encounter.
