Who Should Attend the Awareness Workshop?
Those who wish to accelerate innovation within their organization, solve business challenges creatively, are interested in Human-Centered Design (Design Thinking), or who want to improve their skills in these areas, including:
Product managers, designers, researchers, user experience professionals, marketers, consultants, engineers, and learning professionals interested in Human-Centred Design.
Business, non-profit, government, and academic leaders involved in embedding design thinking and innovation into their organziations.
How is the course different?
Practical and hands-on with a focus on learning-by-doing, using several different practice exercises that
combine individual work with small group collaboration.
Taught by experienced practitioners (not professional facilitators who teach the material but have never practiced it themselves) working in product, service and experience design.

lifestyle (front end and back end).
