The QGLUE Competency Framework for Design Thinking
The QGLUE Competency Framework for Design Thinking is based on the premise that competencies directly affect the enablement of innovation. The framework defines the key dimensions of design thinking competence and the competencies that are most likely to impact the performance of a design thinker.
Certificate Program in Design Thinking
At QGLUE we believe that design-led is a mindset of being innovative and design thinking and human-centric problem-solving help nourish that. Through the Certificate Program in Design Thinking, you will experience the power of Design Thinking to create a path of Innovation. The program covers fundamental principles of Design Thinking, the Design Thinking process steps, and awareness about the Design Tools used in Design Thinking.
D.Learn is an element of the Certificate Program in Design Thinking at QGLUE that allows a participant to solve a real-world business problem using Design Thinking under the mentorship of QGLUE’s Design Coaches. The 6-week journey starts with problem framing and is followed by designing a path to solve the problem. The participant is handheld throughout the process and receives constructive feedback from their peers and coaches at every step of the journey.

We help accelerate innovation and help deliver outcomes.

Innovation doesn’t happen through innovation theatre.
It happens by design: by creating agile organizations, instituting an innovation management system, deliberating business design, instilling a design-driven culture, fostering intrapreneurship and co-innovating with the world at large.
Innovative organizations have future-happier employees,
satisfied customers and contribute to shaping a better world
on a sustained basis.
Let’s accelerate your innovation journey!
Our hands-on design-driven innovation approach has been helping businesses find creative solutions to tough business problems — solutions that are not just right but are also desirable.
