The d.school Bootcamp teaching team has curated a loose collection of the methods, modes and mindsets that Bootcamp students found most useful this quarter. The Bootcamp Bootleg is intended for people who’ve already had an introduction to design thinking, but who need some refreshers as they head out to tackle real-world challenges. The teaching team curated the collection by leveraging the work of many predecessors, drawing from material developed by d.school teaching teams and folks throughout the design world over the last five years.
The key to the bootleg is to take it out and make it your own! If one method isn’t working for you, toss it. If it works, pass it along to another design thinker. If you find a variation that works for you, tweak it and then tell us about it. We’re excited to hear from you.
UPDATE 12/2010: A revised edition of the bootleg is now available — with a dozen more methods and updates throughout. Get it here
