Event Details

Join us for a sneak peek in Design Thinking methodology. We will outline different persona types and derive main pain points from their behavioural triggers and quotes which will serve as challenge reframing and a brainstorming session following in interdisciplinary teams. Learning the basic construction of the winning idea implementation process, you will gain a basic understanding of translating users' needs into innovative and applicable solutions.

This workshop is a two days workshop (2 x 2.5 hours) and requires a basic understanding of Design Thinking as methodology. A prior participation on one of our introduction sessions such as Introduction to Design Thinking or Design Thinking at German Mittelstand are recommended.
