DTC 102 – Design Thinking Certificate

“Design thinking” offers a unique approach to the world of design and is based on the premise “to fail sooner in order to succeed faster.” Design Thinking “is a core axiom in the field of innovation design,” a process attributed to David Kelley, founder of IDEO and “is very popular with engineers, industrial and process designers, and creative folks.”

Bryant’s “Design Thinking Certificate” consists of a series of design thinking workshops, that when completed will provide an innovative and contemporary approach to the world of Design.

Upon Completion You Will Learn How To:

  • Conduct observations of users in their natural environment so as to understand opportunities for new product development or enhancement

  • Conduct effective brainstorming sessions with a team of individuals/experts
  • Engage in effective and rapid low-fidelity prototyping as well as small-scale experiments to test their ideas, learn, and adapt
