Methodology

Phase One:

Design Thinking

Delve into a popular solution-based, human-centric approach to fabricate solutions to complex challenges by understanding and designing for the human psyche.

Step 1: Empathize

Essential to a human-centered design process, this involves understanding experiences to gain deeper personal insight of issues involved.

Step 2: Define

Observes design thinkers seeking a problem statement from a human-centered perspective to identify user needs and wants.

Step 3: Ideate

Teams essentially examine and cogitate with all the possibilities of stimulating creative thinking to form a design concept.

Step 4: Prototype

Designers enter the experimentation phase. Teams will start to fabricate solutions to be examined, improved, or accepted.

Step 5: Test

Teams will implement the solution through rigorous trials to rule out options or to reiterate the design process and derive alternatives.

Youth participants showcasing innovative social solutions

Design Thinking

Steer into daunting social challenges with the human-centred approach to your thinking process. Known as the penultimate stage in the Design Thinking process, designers delve into an iterative phase of deriving inexpensive mock-ups for potential solutions. This boot camp embraces the integral user experience and testing as the core achievements of the programme. The programme observes participants creating prototypes as a tangible product rather than abstract ideas to facilitate alternative solutions to their designs.

*Engages aspiring designers to prototype for innovation

Sustainability Thinkers

Innovation is everyone's business - a manager in a global corporation, an entrepreneur starting up, federal workers, or a teacher in an elementary school, everyone is expected to get lean – to do better with less. Design Thinking nurtures innovative thinkers and uncover creative opportunities that exist whilst asking questions and through observation from a users perspective. This boot camp contextualizes sustainability issues in relation to day-to-day life, business and organizational operations. Participants will develop, prototype, and test solutions for addressing social, environmental and economic issues.

*Engages workforces to incorporate a sustainable mindset

Design and Build for Impact

Ideal for corporate social responsibility initiatives, the programme empowers teams to collaboratively conceptualize and start building solutions - whether for their own or a sponsored community. This programme champions impact for change and community engagement while instilling the principles and practices of a circular economy, relishing the continual use of waste materials and resources. Engage your teams in projects destined for impact, from a playground to improve a lifestyle in education to sustainable bookshelves built from diesel drum!

*Engages creative youths looking to explore upcycling
