Design Thinking
Workshop

Open Batch
26 – 27 August, 2022
Bespoke Custom
In-House Training

At QGLUE we believe that to be design-led is a mindset of being innovative, the design thinking fundamentals and the human-centric problem solving help nourish that. Our design thinking online course puts the user at the heart and employs a collaborative and iterative ‘build to learn’ approach to wicked problem-solving.

Our design thinking online course is a fast-growing approach to solving challenges that businesses are facing increasingly due to the faster rate of change. Change in the form of increasing demands from customers, clients, vendors, and partners have prompted and led us to solutions that curb the opportunity space. Design Thinking is at the center of complex technologies, cost pressures, lack of acceptance of change, and empowerment to build a culture of innovation.

The Design Thinking Competency Framework

The design thinking certification program is based on the QGLUE Design Thinking Competency Framework, a multi-step design thinking methodology that seeks to address often the unarticulated user needs through disciplined creativity. QGLUE has been using the competency framework to assess organizations and deliver to them a comprehensive understanding of their capabilities in the sphere of Design Thinking.

Design Thinking Competency Framework

Design Thinking Certificate Program Overview

Our design thinking training, offers 16 hours of live virtual workshop plus 6 weeks of post-workshop mentored learning.
