About this course
During this intensive, high-paced 5-day program, explore the path of the Double Diamond: from Discover, to Define, to Design, and to Deliver. Along the way, you will be incorporating various skills and tools according to the different phases, such as Research, Stakeholder Mapping and Persona Building (Discover phase), Customer Journey Mapping, Reframing Challenge and Ideation (Define phase), Prototyping, Testing and Implementation (Design phase) and how to process feedback iteratively (Deliver phase). Moreover, you can understand personal areas of development, as we invite experts from theoretical and business standpoints to accompany you in your learning. You will also be able to validate your solution with seasoned practitioners and understand the true impact of your project through this robust program.
At the end of the Bootcamp Week, you will be able to empathize and understand end-users better. You will also be able to create an innovation process driven by fast iterations. Past participants of this program include service designers, heads of innovation, business consultants, product owners, etc. Pamela Caillens, one of the Bootcamp participants from Cartier International SNC., put it best when she said, “The DesignThinkers Global Bootcamp was a real transformation.
