A better way of working
Human-centered design (or design thinking) skills help us unlock our most innovative and creative work; when you’re equipped with the proper tools, you can confidently navigate challenges of all sizes. Simply put, design thinking helps us communicate and collaborate better using simple, proven, repeatable activities that get results.
Whether you’re a team of one or a small group of team players, this powerful approach to problem solving can empower you to design solutions that people actually want and need. And LUMA offers the expert instruction and hands-on training you need to get there.
Earn certification in human-centered design
Our Practitioner Certification Program teaches you the LUMA System of Innovation so you can solve real-world problems, regardless of your industry or job title. You’ll leverage expert coaching and hands-on activities to make your new skills stick.
During virtual sessions over the course of six weeks, you’ll learn more than a dozen human-centered design methods. You’ll collaborate with a group of 15 other people.
The Practitioner Certification Program includes:
- Four live learning sessions to teach you the fundamentals of human-centered design and the LUMA System.
- Followed by three live coaching sessions to help you apply what you’ve learned back in your daily work, share out your results, and receive expert feedback from a LUMA coach as well as peer feedback from other participants.
