The A4Q Design Thinking Foundation certification attests to an individual’s knowledge and understanding of this collaborative, innovation-seeking approach to problem-solving and solutions development.
Holders of the certificate can apply the core principles of design thinking and use design thinking approaches to identify and evaluate, creative and practical outcomes to real-life problems and business challenges.
The certification is supported by accredited training. The accredited training course will help participants to develop their design thinker’s toolkit and show how to use empathy and experimentation to achieve human centred innovative solutions. The course will help participants to use and align tools (e.g. visualisation, rapid prototyping and customer co-creation) with design thinking processes.
The course is heavily focussed on developing the design thinking mindset and expertise in the use of design thinking methods so that participants will be ready to effectively apply learning back in the workplace.
