Innovation – Design Thinking with Agile Methods (November 3 – 4, 2020| online)

Written by

A cooperation of InGrA and Transfer and Entrepreneurship Office at MLU.

Our world is becoming increasingly connected! Complexity, ambiguity and speed are the results. And everyone wants to be innovative and agile. But what do innovation and agility really mean? And how does it work?

The aim of this course is to establish a common understanding of innovation and agility. Also, the participants will be equipped with the basic skills and frameworks to effectively facilitate innovation. Furthermore, we will learn how to get into the right mindset and atmosphere, so that you can produce of-the-box results. Your leanings are also applicable outside of Design Thinking.

Target Group

Doctoral students and Postdocs who have one or more initial ideas that could be developed into a product or service and want to learn Design Thinking as a facilitation framework.

Your Benefit

  • You will be equipped with and practice new tools
  • You will reflect on your own way of thinking and working
  • You will improve your communication through systematic feedbacks
  • You will practice dealing with “mistakes”
  • You will work more co-creatively by so called “working-out-loud”.


  • Phase 1: What is agile? Are all innovations really innovations? Establishing the right innovation culture. What is and when do you use Design Thinking?
  • Phase 2: What are the limits of Design Thinking? What is the Design-Thinking Framework? Hands-on going through the Design-Thinking- Framework
  • Phase 3: Where to implement the Design-Thinking-Framework and its tools into your daily work?


You anchor knowledge and learning experiences through a variety of interactions: Design Thinking Mindset, Design Thinking Framework, Agile Tools.
