Design Thinking Crash Course | Austin

About this workshop

We have rebranded this workshop to Design Thinking Workshop. Click the link below to find the next instance.

Using design thinking methods developed by David Kelly at the Stanford d.School, learn how to make faster, better design decisions by putting the customer first. Design Thinking is based on a series of Steps: Empathy, Definition, Ideation, Prototyping and Testing. And a set of Mindsets: Human Centered, Bias Towards Action, Show Don't Tell, Radical Collaboration, Culture of Prototyping and Mindful of Process. We will touch on each of these during the Crash Course.


  • Having a bias towards action gets you somewhere faster
  • Embrace failure and use it as an opportunity to learn
  • Have empathy for your customer
