Design Thinking provides us with a systematic and structural approach to solving complex problems from many fields and to find new solutions that meet the needs of those involved. It is often used in the field of idea and innovation development.

The method is based on a multi-step, agile and iterative process. This design thinking process helps us to narrow down and actually understand our problem, identify solution spaces and generate concrete ideas. In each step of this process, we apply different creative techniques and thus approach innovative solutions for our problem. Users and their needs are always in the foreground.

This course introduces the steps of the design thinking process, explains them and provides a number of methods and tools which can be applied to facilitate each step.

LEVEL5 is not just about validation, it is a holistic validation and learning system.
