Design Thinking Bootcamp: Make Impact and Drive Growth in Your Organization

Learn and apply skills to solve real business challenges using human-centered design techniques in a four-day workshop at Stanford’s d.school.

D.School Executive Education

At Design Thinking Bootcamp, we understand that every product, service, and experience you work on must deliver. Our intensive program is focused on helping you solve complex problems and supports you to design and build innovative solutions for future growth. You will learn proven yet unconventional skills and tools to magnify consumer empathy and bring early product concepts to life quickly. As some of our alums have said, “you will accomplish more in three days at Bootcamp than in 30 days of work”. You will feel the intense pace at which innovation can happen. Our dynamic teaching team is committed to coaching you as you work in a small team with other professionals on a real project to apply our design thinking methods. You will leave with a toolkit of revolutionary ways of thinking about your work and the challenge to bring new products, services, or experiences to market.
