HPI School of Design Thinking and HPI Academy have significantly shaped and promoted the development and diffusion of Design Thinking in Europe for years. Insights from our joint research program with Stanford University as well as long experience in the application of the Design Thinking method have provided us with a wide range of approaches to solve challenges within different industries and topics.
Building on this foundation and in partnership with several blue chip companies, we co-developed and launched the Design Thinking Professional Track in 2014. This program is specifically designed for executives who are decision makers and innovation catalysts in organizations searching for creative solutions to the complex challenges within their working context.
Participants are primarily executives and senior managers from all industries who have already experienced the impact of Design Thinking and aim to go deeper, address more concretely the questions of complexity and strategy, and work on specific company-relevant challenges. The program is for individuals and also small groups (up to 5 people) from a company. Its aim is to build confidence in applying the key Design Thinking principles within your organizational work. The program will allow you to discover the leveraging effect of Design Thinking in the most important areas of managing complexity: Collaboration Culture, Innovation Processes and Strategy Implementation.
