Skills Gained:
You will learn the Design Thinking as a creative problem solving approach to enable you and to use in solving customer individual challenges, like defining new strategies, organizations, processes and of course defining new customer individual IT solutions. This is done by solving a concrete (not IT related) training challenge within 2 days training duration. The training participants will team up to groups and walk through all Design Thinking phases, inspired and coached by Design Thinking professionals from SAP. They will solve the training challenge and close the training by building a "low-fi prototype" which addresses the challenge. SAP Development has adopted Design Thinking and meanwhile it is part of the Standard SAP software development process.
Who Should Attend?
Solution Architects, Project Leaders, Managers, Application and Technical Consultants (generally, all people who work with others to solve problems) People who would like to run the methodology within their own company and act as multiplier there.

  • Notes
  • • Design Thinking is a problem-solving approach with its origins in the product design and therefore has to rely heavily on creativity and deep understanding of the later product users. Meanwhile, the approach is applied also to overcoming a variety of challenges in business.
  • • The application of Design Thinking requires no specific "design" experience or personality traits, which the designer profession usually requires.
