Become Trained in Design for Delight (D4D)

In Partnership with Intuit

NACCE is proud to partner with Intuit to train educators in Design for Delight (D4D)!

What is D4D? Design for Delight, or “D4D”, is Intuit’s version of design thinking that leverages 3 core principles - Deep Customer Empathy, Go Broad to Go Narrow, and Rapid Experiments - to support creative problem solving. The goal of D4D is to help teams be bold, and identify big unsolved problems, gain empathy, run quick experiments with actual customers, test assumptions, and pivot if needed. Learn more about D4D here.

How can I become trained in D4D? Join us on Tuesday, October 13 from 12:00 PM - 5:00 PM EST for our virtual training! There are 50 spots open and we have 30 scholarships available for this training (worth $199). Scholarships are first come, first served and will only be given to educators pursuing the Intuit Design Thinking Innovator Badge. During this training, you will:
