Design Thinking: A Practical Workshop for Any Discipline

Thursday, April 20, 2023, 12:00 AM - 1:00 AM
(UTC+02:00) Berlin, Bern
Ulrich E. Basler

During this workshop, we'll take you on a virtual mission to develop a new online application for a typical business task.

We'll start with an interactive discovery phase to identify ideas based on customer needs. Then, we'll work together to prioritise ideas and develop a low-fidelity prototype of our new application.

Throughout the workshop, you'll gain inspiration for different problem-solving approaches and learn how to apply some design thinking principles in practice. We'll also provide you with links to further design thinking resources, and you'll have the opportunity to speak with the presenter throughout the conference.

You'll dive into design thinking methodology, which enables the creation of more effective and user-friendly solutions that are more likely to meet the needs of users and achieve business objectives.

This session will explore:

  • Learn how human-centric solution design is achieved using Design Thinking methods
  • Get an overview of key design thinking phases and methods
  • Join us in applying design thinking methods live during a virtual application development mission
  • Enjoy prototyping as a team in a simple, yet effective way.

Learning outcomes:

  • Learn additional methods to design solutions from a customer viewpoint.
  • Learn new ways of prototyping - testing parts of solutions and learning early what works and what doesn’t
  • Learning about how people work is fun, and is highly valuable for creating best-value solutions for users and business.
