Previously available only to our enterprise clients, LUMA Institute is now offering our Practitioner Certification Program to the public. The program combines expert instruction in the LUMA System of Innovation through hands-on training, peer-to-peer learning and on-demand resources to help everyone build skills and confidence thinking and working like a designer.
The program starts with a two-day, in-person workshop followed by three coaching sessions, two hours each, held remotely with a certified LUMA instructor. Check our schedule for cities and dates.
Through a dynamic mix of presentations and hands-on activities, the workshop will teach you to apply a versatile system that:
Provides your teams with a repeatable way to innovate
Promotes productive collaboration across teams
Offers creative alternatives to traditional brainstorming
Helps uncover deeper insights from market research
Guides and informs development work for products, services and processes
Following the workshop, you’ll continue with activities and instruction to help you effectively apply human-centered design to your daily work. Components include:
Remote sessions for expert coaching and instruction in additional design methods
Assignments to complete and share
Peer-to-peer sessions to give and get constructive feedback
Presentations to demonstrate how you have used human-centered design
Throughout the Practitioner Certification Program, you’ll use LUMA Workplace®, LUMA’s digital platform that’s loaded with human-centered design tools, resources, how-to videos, expert tips, downloads and more.
