What: 3-hour workshop

When: March 18th, 09.00-12.00

Where: The Kitchen, Nørrebrogade 44, 8000 Aarhus C

 

 

Design thinking has become a very popular approach for handling a wide range of development processes. It is both a mindset and a method consisting of several sub-processes that can be applied in order to define, develop and implement projects that create more value to the surroundings.

 

After a short introduction to the theoretical underpinning of the method, the rest of the workshop will be very practical and focus on:

  • How to develop a deep understanding of the stakeholders’ perspectives, needs, aspirations etc. and integrate this knowledge into the framework of the project
  • How to develop innovative ideas, building on this deep understanding
  • How to turn these ideas into concepts and solutions that can be implemented

The workshop will be a mix of short presentations, experiments with concrete tools as well as a brief discussion and reflection about the application of the design thinking approach.

 

By the end of the workshop you will have knowledge about

  • The theoretical foundation of the approach
  • The different design thinking process models
  • The core sub-processes of the design thinking model

And ability to

  • Apply the method to shorter development processes
