Design Thinking Bootcamp

  • Innovation Lab Fribourg 4 Chemin du Musée Fribourg, FR, 1700 Switzerland (map)

Empathy and experimentation. Inspiration and ideation. This Design Thinking Bootcamp is a dynamic mix of short instructional lectures, demonstrations, and guided hands-on teamwork.

In this program, which has an 8-to-1 student-teacher ratio, you’ll learn many elements of user-centered prototype-driven design thinking processes, all of which will be taught by trained coaches and university experts. You’ll put those new tools into practice right away with a real-world innovation challenge from an outside company. You and your team will take to the field with interviews and observations of customers to better understand what motivates them.

Your ability to implement the design thinking principles and practices that you’ve learned is our top priority. That’s why we’ll help you create action plans for real work projects and provide post-program coaching: In this way, you’ll be able to successfully execute innovation in your own organization.
