  1. Enhance your problem solving skill and the customer experience journey with the Design Thinking approach to innovation.
  2. Learn how to make the invisible (e.g. touchpoints, experience, journeys) visible, so that you can work smarter, be more innovative and create a better experience.
  3. Learn the five types of ideation techniques to generate quantity and quality of ideas.


In today's increasing complexity of modern technology and modern business, customers are increasingly choosing products and services based on the quality of the experiences they have with them. To help meet these challenges, an approach known as "Design Thinking" is playing a greater role in finding meaningful pathways - it is increasingly common in Lean Six Sigma processes and in organizational innovation initiatives. Industry practitioners of Design Thinking include Uber, AirBnB, IDEO, Apple, Nike, Procter & Gamble, SAP, Singapore Airlines and DBS Bank.

Design thinking is a human-centered, iterative problem-solving process of discovery, ideation, and experimentation that employs various design-based techniques to gain insight and yield innovative solutions for virtually any type of organizational or business challenge. This method combines both analytical and creative approaches to generate solutions.

In this training guide, you will learn how to solve problems by building empathy through ethnographic research, generating ideas, prototyping and testing new concepts before final implementation.

NOTE: This training presentation comes with Design Thinking templates in Powerpoint format.
