Abstract

In this chapter, we discuss the idea of “creative confidence” as an objective of design thinking education as taught at the design thinking schools in Potsdam and Stanford. In brief, creative confidence refers to one’s own trust in his creative problem solving abilities. Strengthening this trust is a main goal of the education at the design thinking schools. However, there have been only few efforts to develop the concept of creative confidence in design thinking on a deeper and measurable level. To substantiate this discussion, we will compare creative confidence with the concept of self-efficacy and discuss this in the context of the education at the design thinking schools.
