At the cornerstone of Design Thinking Bootcamp is working on a real business challenge that gives you the opportunity to actively learn tools and behaviors that you will apply to your work before leaving the d.school.
Instruction: Design thinking experts (a combination of Stanford faculty and all-star Design Thinking Bootcamp alums) will guide teams while paying close attention to individual growth and discovery. The student-to-faculty ratio is 6:1.
Experience: The first three days of Design Thinking Bootcamp focus on applying design thinking skills (empathy, define, ideate, prototype, test) along with learning tools to generate and evaluate a portfolio of high-quality design work. These days are taught in a combination of classroom lessons and hands-on small group work. You will learn the theory and practice of our methods. On the fourth day of the program, you will make progress on your real business challenge using the tools you’ve learned. In the week after the program, you will be supported by our coaches to apply design techniques to a real business challenge.
Environment: The d.school is a cutting edge space where you will experience classroom content and also work actively in a hands-on design studio.
Teamwork: Small teams are composed of professionals with unique perspectives and backgrounds.
