The Conrad Design Method®: No Box Toolbox (CDM®) is a digital framework designed specifically for students, teachers and professionals to understand and accomplish innovative and entrepreneurial solutions. Step by step, users identify and understand a problem, sketch solutions, prototype and validate. The interactive tool, which includes hands-on exercises and short video lectures, provides the opportunity for users to engage, support and mentor each other. In addition, it offers customized support to directly assist users in completing each step of the innovation process.
CDM® is a product of the Conrad Foundation, a non-profit organization whose programs combine science and technology-based education, innovation and entrepreneurship to inspire solutions for achieving global sustainability. This framework is also a key component of the Conrad Challenge, an annual innovation competition for high school students.
