“Working toward the Advanced Design Thinking certificate from IDEO was sometimes challenging but always rewarding. It was good to get out of my very literal brain and think outside the box – way outside! I’m already using the skills I learned to rethink how we ask our clients questions to get them thinking more creatively.”Management Consultant, Jill Hooper
An important aspect to note is the focus on real-life project challenges, which are tangible and practical. Jill has developed her skills by working on insights reports and creating prototypes for different products and services.
