Vereiste voorkennis

Prior knowledge is not required, but it is worth starting with our other training about the first three steps in design thinking. This is always planned three weeks before this training. You can therefore do both courses consecutively.


Deze klassikale opleiding volg je samen met medecursisten op locatie. Je traject bestaat uit drie stappen, die elkaar aanvullen.

Stap 1: online
Je opleiding start op Karibu, je online-leerplatform. Dit eerste leermoment doorloop je op je eigen tempo, waar en wanneer je wilt.

Let op: deze stap afwerken is een vereiste om verder te gaan.

Stap 2: klassikaal
Tijdens deze stap ben je een hele dag ‘live’ aanwezig op de opleidingslocatie, samen met je medecursisten. Je leert van en met elkaar, op basis van de inzichten uit stap 1. Gewoonlijk is de groep samengesteld uit zes tot twaalf cursisten.

Stap 3: online
Dit leermoment vindt opnieuw plaats op Karibu. Ook deze stap doorloop je op je eigen tempo, waar en wanneer je wilt.

Step 2: in class (8 hours)

Together with your course mates you spend an entire day practicing the design thinking method.

    • Evolution of business modelling
    • Business model canvas

    • Storyboard
    • Explorative prototyping
    • Investigative rehearsal
  • You learn to assess ideas with the design thinking method.


Step 3: online (1 hour)

A short recap: you repeat the key in the design thinking method and get further inspiration from videos and literature.

Then you conduct a small experiment and measure the impact. Using your knowledge of the design thinking method you evaluate and adjust as necessary.
