Design Thinking

For Beginners.


Scarlett Spiegeler Castañeda


Scarlett Spiegeler Castañeda is an engineer and passionate design thinking expert. She leads the Design Factory and ensures that the mindset is also anchored in ARENA2036.

Get to Know Design Thinking!

Our beginner's training is suitable for anyone who wants to get to know and understand Design Thinking and its mindset in depth. In addition, the first starting points for the application in everyday working life are developed and there is the possibility to actively participate as a mentor in semester courses of the Design Factory afterwards.

Moving Forward as a Team

Joint training is enormously helpful for collaboration on projects in everyday work. At the Design Factory, you will learn a wide variety of methods to develop creative solutions together. On the one hand, coaching can give everyone a new perspective on problems and the solution-finding process - on the other hand, the joint mindset training also strengthens team spirit. Design Factory Stuttgart therefore also conducts in-house Design Thinking workshops and training sessions.

You will experience the training along the following modules:

  1. Methods / Mindset Training (6 x 1h)
  2. Process run-through (2 x 8h)
  3. Reflection and Transfer (1 x 4h)

With a maximum of eight participants per training session, we want to ensure that each participant can take away the greatest possible added value. The next training will take place in September 2022. Interested? Contact our design thinking expert Scarlett for more information on how to apply.

Impressions from the first Beginners' Course

In September 2021, the first beginners' training took place in the Design Factory Stuttgart. Employees of the University of Stuttgart on the one hand and employees of partner companies of ARENA2036 on the other hand participated. For prototype testing on site and as interview partners, other employees of ARENA2036 also took part.
