Design Thinking (DT) evolved at many organizations as the way to solve problems in creative and innovative ways. Much of the thinking behind the DT iterative process focuses on challenging assumptions and redefining problems for products, services or customer experiences. As Design Thinking has taken hold, there has been an increasing demand to raise up its capacity to help solving problems in our business complexities, in our countries and in our lives. Paul Hobcraft, 2016 Improving the Potential for Innovation through Design Thinking. Herbert Simon defined design as the changing of existing conditions into preferred ones.
The course ‘Design Thinking’ is implemented in the two forms: as a blended course (a combination of seminars with lectors’ presence and supporting by educational software, i.e. interactive web-based training) and as a distance-learning course (where seminars replaced on the ‘life-webinars’). This course is the result of educational & research activities for the last 30 years and is offering a new management approach in an integrated and holistic way (i.e. via ‘Integrated management’ prism perception). The five modules of the course provide theoretical background knowledge and offer practical management tools for an effective and efficient Design Thinking implementation, the level of corporative creativity increasing and innovations support.
