Design Thinking For Innovation
Large companies, non-profit organizations, leading media organizations, and governments around the world are using human centered design (or design thinking) to address some of their most challenging problems. By using a human-centered way of thinking, many of the most creative and innovative products and services in the world have been developed.
In this workshop, led by Rey Duarte, IDEO trained facilitator, you will learn how to apply the IDEO (the leader and founding company of design thinking) methodology for Design Thinking as a creative approach to problem solving, and innovation when developing new products, services, and experiences. This one-day workshop is a hands-on, interactive learning and doing experience on design thinking .
As an active participant you will learn the process of design thinking and be able to apply this to innovation within your organization or on a personal project or problem you would like to solve.
Participants will engage in the three major aspects of design thinking: inspiration, ideation, and implementation.
Takeaways from this one-day workshop:
