Applying Design Thinking To Problem Solving & Innovation

 

NEW DATES COMING SOON

ABOUT

“Design thinking is a human centered and collaborative approach to problem solving using a design mindset to solve complex problems” from Tim Brown IDEO CEO and president.

In this workshop, led by an IDEO trained facilitator, you will learn how to apply the IDEO methodology for Design Thinking as a creative approach to problem solving and innovation for new products, services, and experiences.

Fortune 100 companies, prominent 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.

This one-day workshop is a hands-on, interactive learning and doing experience on Design Thinking with an experienced practitioner from IDEO (the leader and founding company of design thinking).

As an active participant you will go through the process of design thinking and end the session by coming up with a plan to take on a project or problem you would like to solve – in your own organization.

Participants will engage in the three major aspects of design thinking: inspiration, ideation, and implementation.  

Takeaways from this one-day workshop:

  • how design thinking applies to services, products or customer experiences
  • developing creative methods for conducting people-centered research
  • how to frame a design challenge that address a problem in your industry or organization
  • applying the process for generating lots of user-centered ideas
  • prototyping ideas cheaply and quickly
  • how to iterate quickly on your ideas with user feedback
  • creating a roadmap for applying design thinking to a project or challenge you’re working on

Who Should Attend

Entrepreneurs, visionaries, and anyone interested in a new approach to problem solving, creativity and innovation.
