About this program

As a Design Thinking facilitator, you will face many different issues. Who should you include for which part of a project, how does one deal with the most important stakeholders and what are your responsibilities according to the general objectives of your project?

We evaluated our combined experience of more than 15 years as Design Thinkers, along with the latest scientific insights and created the DTA Certified Facilitator Design Thinking Program. It’s a combination of interactive training, together with individual coaching, as well as a buddy system and an official assessment.
