About This Workshop

Please Note: This class takes place at our brand new campus, 125 Summer Street, Boston, MA 02110.

Learn how to use the design thinking methods developed by David Kelly at the Stanford d.School, as well as how to make faster and better design decisions by putting the customer first.

Design Thinking is based on a series of steps:

  1. Empathy
  2. Definition
  3. Ideation
  4. Prototyping
  5. Testing

And a set of Mindsets:

  • Human Centered
  • Bias Towards Action
  • Show, Don't Tell
  • Radical Collaboration
  • Culture of Prototyping
  • Mindful of Process

We will touch on each of these during the crash course.

Takeaways

  • Learn how to embrace failure and use it as an opportunity to learn
  • Discover how to have empathy for your customer

Prereqs & Preparation

There are no prerequisites and no pre-work is necessary. Please bring an open mind and leave your laptop behind.
