With Design Thinking

Design thinking.

Use this course to discover the tools and methods the world's top companies use to stay ahead, and earn a Certificate of Completion in Design Thinking Fundamentals from O'Briant Group, LLC.

Hi, I'm Quinn. Let's Start Innovating.

Very few people know and practice the skills of design thinking, and that’s not fair.

Design thinking is the method that gives insanely innovative companies their competitive advantage, but most people don’t know what the method is or how to apply it.


Everyone in business knows they need to innovate, but they don’t know how to do it in a reliable, repeatable way. That's why some companies are always one step -- or many steps -- ahead.

Those companies have teams of people teaching and applying the methods of design thinking every day.

I know, because I was one of those people at Google, and I studied design thinking at Stanford University, where I earned a master’s degree.


As the Founder and CEO of O'Briant Group, a leading design thinking and innovation firm, it's my pleasure to introduce you to the foundational concepts of design thinking. Let's go!
