This course is an introduction to "Design Thinking" as an approach to problem solving and risk management.
Design Thinking is an innovation management method developed at Stanford University in the United States in the 1980s. This method creates a synthesis between analytical and intuitive thinking. This course aims to familiarize students with this integrated and collaborative design process, which relies heavily on transdisciplinary co-creation and feeds on feedback from stakeholders as well as from the reality check.
