As firms continue to search for competitive advantage in a rapidly changing marketplace, design thinking is emerging as a framework for innovation. The 1Y Design Thinking Bootcamp will introduce you to the design thinking process emphasizing ethnographic research and consumer empathy, ideation and concepting, prototyping and rapid-iteration. The three session program walks you through Discovery, Development and Delivery equipping you with a problem-solving approach that can be utilized across industry, sector or functional area.

Bootcamp combines traditional classroom sessions, live cases from the private sector and a hands-on research project for a unique and fun learning opportunity. While no grades will be assigned, you are expected to commit yourself to the program and your team and attend all sessions and actively engage in the team project. The commitment is not insignificant, but you stand to gain an introduction to a framework that could be a competitive differentiator for both you and your firm.
