Design Thinking – Finding creative solutions for new problems

This year from one day to another almost every aspect of our lives changed. We had to solve problems we have never had before and we realised that a lot of things we thought were not possible became normal. Challenging times always offer a lot of potential for innovation, creativity and new ideas. And here comes the Design Thinking method. It is one of the most popular methods for innovation used by businesses, NGOs or the public sector. This method will help you to get to know your target audience or customer and create solutions which are tailored to their needs. Design Thinking is using many interactive methods and during the process you will explore the problem from different perspectives, destroy your previous assumptions, get out of your comfort zone and learn a lot about your target audience. The Design Thinking principles and methods can be used in various aspects from changing the format of your patrol meetings to finding innovative solutions to achieve Sustainable Development Goals. During this session you will learn in a very interactive way more about the method, its basic principles, examples of case studies and you will try some of the activities by yourself during a group work.

 

At the end of the session, participants will be able to;

  • understand the phases of the Design Thinking process and connected activities
  • recognise situation when is the method suitable
  • learn where to find additional materials
  • use some of the methods in real case study
