Design Thinking Skills Course in Singapore
Design Thinking Skills Course in Singapore
Design Thinking is a mindset and a human-centred process of finding suitable solutions to complex problems to get the desired outcome. This method is used to figure out unknown problems by understanding human needs. It’s a solution-focused method to, actively, build up to a preferred result. It induces logic, creativity, intuition, and systemic reasoning, to examine possibilities.
The Hasso-Plattner Institute of Design at Stanford is said to be the leading university when it comes to design. They proposed five (5) stages to Design Thinking. These stages are Empathizing, Defining the Problem, Ideating, Prototyping, and, Testing. They also emphasized that the process doesn’t always follow a linear course in actual applications. It could be that during the later stages, there will be a need to revert to the first or second stage of the design process.
This mindset revolves around what can be done to improve or help the community, the client, and, generally, anybody with a problem. The question, “What can I do to help?” is often in mind. Unlike, deductive reasoning where the top is always right, design thinking allows one to explore problems individually and not just to address as a whole.
Ergonomics is a field of science involved in human and machine interaction. Ergonomists study and evaluate the operator’s comfort and safety to improve their working environment. They considerably use their Design Thinking skills to find solutions and improve the operator’s overall health and productivity. There are plenty more fields using these skills besides Ergonomics. Building up these skills will positively affect one’s way of life and the lives of others.
This course will introduce individuals to Design Thinking. It will serve as a guide to build up the mindset and get involved in the community or the workplace.
