Training description

Design Thinking is a method which is gaining more and more recognition around the world. It serves to raise creativity levels while designing new products and processes with minimum costs incurred. Design Thinking is a tool which helps create innovations and improvements to existing products so that they can meet actual expectations of potential and end users. Additionally, it is one of the most reliable methods used during pre-project phase to assess whether it is cost-efficient to engage in the initiative and how the end product of the project should work to bring as many benefits to the organization as possible.

DTMethod is an APMG accredited Design Thinking methodology. It comprises a set of rules, guidelines and tools helping to restructure Design Thinking. Thanks to DTMethod the process, which is considered chaotic, is easier to predict and to implement within an organization.

The core elements of DTMethod are:
DTRules&Roles – principles and roles required to use during the Design Thinking Process
DTModel – a template of activities and a schedule which allows to realize the process goals
DTTools – a verified set of tools which should be used in the Design Thinking Process

Implementing of DTMethod as a methodology to utilize all of the above.
