In three Dayto a new Design Thinking Mindset: Innovation can be learned
The HPI Academy’s Design Thinking Introduction workshop is one of the most established learning formats on Design Thinking worldwide. In the sought-after workshops of recent years, hundreds of professionals from all industries have discovered this method for themselves and their organizations. In the spirit of design thinking, the program is constantly being developed. The participants design solutions for a concrete problem in multidisciplinary teams and thus go through the design thinking process. Short theoretical introductions to methods and tools alternate with practical experience and subsequent reflection.
HPI Academy, Potsdam

3.000 EUR (plus VAT)
We also offer this workshop exclusively for companies – feel free to bring your own project or challenge.
On the first Day, participants receive an intensive introduction to the methods and working methods of Design Thinking within the framework of various lectures and exercises. The special focus of the Dayis on the so-called problem space, in which the problem is redefined from the user’s point of view, in order to lay down new lines of sight and open up innovative solution perspectives. For this, participants learn to understand a problem, to make use of interdisciplinary understanding, and to conduct and evaluate interviews.
Start: 9:00 a.m., End: 5:15 p.m. with transition to a happy hour
The focus of the second Dayis on the first steps in the solution space, i.e. the phases of idea generation and prototyping. For this purpose, the participants learn methods for creative brainstorming and the selection of ideas as well as different approaches to prototyping through short inputs and teamwork phases.
Start: 9:00, End: 17:00
On the third Day, the focus is both on testing the developed prototypes and understanding the iterative approach, and on reflecting on the methods. This reflection serves to transfer what has been experienced and learned into practice in a meaningful way: Which method is suitable for which process step? How do the tools differ, where are there similarities? How did the collaboration in a diverse team go? How can a first transfer into the own work context look like?
Start: 9:00, End: 16:00
The follow-up appointment following the workshop offers participants the opportunity to exchange ideas with each other and with a coach from the HPI Academy again about 4 to 6 weeks after the course. This supports a sustainable learning experience: What could be transferred from the workshop into everyday work? What obstacles or challenges have emerged? What did the content do or change?
