About This Workshop

Design Thinking is a creative problem solving method and mindset. It’s human-centred, iterative, and collaborative. The methodology leads you to compelling solutions for an undefined and unstructured world.

Improv is short for ‘improvised theatre’. Unlike traditional, scripted theatre, scripts are not memorised or plays rehearsed; instead, the audience’s input is relied on to inspire stories & sketches. The plot, characters & dialogue of the scenes created are made up in the moment. Nothing exists until it’s made real.

Improv and Design Thinking are complementary ways of thinking to help you move forward. They both place humans at the centre, whether through empathetic user research or telling stories that matter.

Through a hands-on workshop, we will cover:

  • A VERY brief intro Design Thinking
  • What is improv?
  • How to gain empathy and understand context
  • Supercharge the Ideation process

Takeaways

  • An overview of the Design Thinking process
  • Use improv techniques to better understand and articulate user needs
  • Use improv techniques to find and expolore divergent ideas

Prereqs & Preparation

Basic understanding of the Design Thinking methodology.

Additionally, do check out these articles from Forbes, Medium and Scott Berkun to set the scene before the class.
