About this course

The highly interactive online DT Bootcamp consists of Master Classes, in-depth knowledge of Service Design & Design Thinking Tools as well as a deep-dive into the DT Methodology without forgetting the human-centered collaboration. The main goal of the Online DT Bootcamp is to guide you through our ‘learning-by-doing’ method by giving you key insights in how to apply Service Design Thinking.

With a combination of live, Virtual Classroom sessions and group assignments, you will gain practical knowledge and experience to apply Design Thinking in your daily work.


What you'll learn
