Design thinking is one of the world’s most popular approaches for establishing a dynamic, human-centered, purpose-driven innovation culture in organizations. Our experience has shown that in order for innovation teams to reach their full potential, they need the guidance of well-trained design thinking coaches who can accompany and facilitate learning processes, workshops, and projects with design thinking and unleash the potential of these teams.
For a context-related, target-oriented and sustainable application of Design Thinking, well-trained Design Thinking coaches are required. With this in mind, we launched the HPI Certification Program for Design Thinking Coaches in 2015 and since then, we have trained over 300 coaches from around the world, who bring design thinking straight into the heart of their organizations, companies, and clients every day.
By becoming a design thinking coach, you will be able to provide valuable support to organizations and individuals in developing the skills and mindsets necessary to drive positive change and contribute to a better future for all.
Find out how you too can benefit from our certification program for design thinking professionals, team facilitators and coaches – professionally as well as privately.
Our program is divided into three blocks, carefully sequenced and structured to provide the best possible learning journey for you. Depending on your interests and objectives, you can choose from three different variants. Thematically, the first two blocks (DT-Teaching-Practitioner to DT-Team-Facilitator) primarily highlight the immediate activity of team facilitation (microdidactics), while block three focuses on preparatory and planning coaching activities (macrodidactics).
