QUOTES FROM FORMER PARTICIPANTS

The Masterclasses with top professionals from the service design field and the hands-on training inspired my work as a human centered design consultant and trainer. The DT Bootcamp was a wonderful experience. Thanks Designthinkers!


Alexander Faga, Swisscom (www.swisscom.ch)

DT Bootcamp is refreshing, informative and fun. A week of hard work, but the right mix of theory and practice, the program never boring. The international setting and participants from different business sectors provide you with special insights. Highlight of the program, I found the daily masterclass. Very practical oriented and therefore directly applicable to my current work.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION
We strongly believe in ‘Learning by Doing’, so the DesignThinkers Bootcamp will be a high energy and hands-on event. You’ll be challenged to work in small teams on a real case and learn to work with Service Design and Design Thinking tools like Personas, Cultural Probes, Customer Journey Mapping, Stakeholder Mapping, Value Network Mapping, Prototyping, Business Modeling, Road Mapping and more. Moreover, a focus of this program will be on exploring the questions how to integrate these tools in an organization and how to create buy-in within an organization and with your sponsors.

The end result is aimed at a transformation of the participants, knowledge of tools and methods, a deep understanding of the value of design, and professional & personal growth.

WHO SHOULD SUBSCRIBE TO THE DESIGNTHINKERS BOOTCAMP?
The DT Bootcamp is especially designed for ‘Industry Executives’, ‘Senior Government Policy Makers’ and ‘Independent Professionals’ who want to take the next step towards actually using Design Thinking in their daily work. Next to learning Service Design Thinking tools and methodology and transforming your way of thinking and your mindset, the Bootcamp coaches are all practitioners and will guide participants toward putting Design Thinking into practice.

HOW WILL THE PROGRAM CHANGE YOUR DAILY WORKING LIFE?
Our main objective is to provide you with hands-on tools that you can use immediately the next day in your working environment. But we will also facilitate train-the-trainer aspects, so by transforming your mindset and your way of thinking you will be able to train your own team.

Besides the training program you will be handed out a toolkit, certificate and access to the DT Academy Network virtual environment.
