DESIGN THINKING FOR BUSINESS STRATEGY AND INNOVATION

 
Design thinking is a powerful methodology that many companies are using to develop creative and innovative solutions to very challenging problems. In this seminar, you will engage in a series of hands-on activities to learn about the five-stage design thinking process and to practice the techniques. You will learn about how to conduct empathy-based user research, synthesize insights from your fieldwork, brainstorm creative solutions, prototype effectively, and test your proposed solutions. This workshop will embrace a learning-by-doing approach in which you will work on a mock project with others as you learn about the design thinking process.
