Description

Overview

How to get the best out of these three approaches, from a designer’s viewpoint? This intensive 2.5-hour training session will give you an understanding of where Design Thinking, Lean, and Agile place in the creative problem-solving, design, and software development lifecycle. You will learn how to utilize them to your own and team’s benefit, and how to constructively challenge common assumptions and misconceptions about each.

Who This Is For

  1. Junior to senior level designers looking to get a better understanding of the three sets of principles and process models
  2. Delivery managers and business leads working with (digital) designers and developers
  3. Software developers looking to find better ways to understand, and collaborate with designers

This training session is not a detailed view into Agile, Design Thinking, or Lean UX, but an overview of the three and their value for designers and others.

Key Benefits

  • Learn about the history and key principles of each approach. Where do they come from, and what do they have in common? What are the differences?
  • Learn how to understand them all as different approaches to problem solving, product design, and development
  • Learn how to avoid common pitfalls and debunk misconceptions
