Q7: What is Design Thinking Practitioner?

Q8: What concepts of design thinking are covered in the certification program?

Empathy study, Effective interviews, Observation studies, Brainstorming methods, Assumptions Testing and Prototyping, etc. are few of the many concepts covered in this program.

Q9: How is design thinking course different from running design sprints?

Design Thinking is both a problem definition and problem-solving framework. We can use it in an early stage to discover opportunities, to frame and reframe problems using empathy with our customers, and then find solutions through ideating, prototyping and testing. Design Sprints are purely a problem-solving method. For Design Sprints to work, we must start with a well-defined challenge.

Overall, the session was very insightful. We may have had to spend a lot of time but it’s all worth it. It gave me a better understanding of Design Thinking, a whole new approach with different tools and methods to be used. The pace was just pretty much good. VK Sir was able to explain everything clearly and he provided very good examples that are relatable to everyone. I appreciate all the activities as they gave us all a better idea about the tools and methods to be used. It also gave our team an opportunity to look at the different perspectives when it comes to applying design thinking and I also like how our team collaborated very well. I really look forward to being able to apply everything that I have learned and also share it with others by facilitating some of the training in the future.

Grateful to our facilitator VK. This training opens up a great opportunity to know other tools used in DT! I like the application of theoretical learnings to various activities we did during the training. (I also like the Miro board, quite interactive and easy to use).
