About this class

Why it's relevant: In increasingly complex times, innovation and collaboration skills are becoming vital to businesses, and both principles are essential in Design Thinking. Design Thinking stresses the importance of cultivating empathy in order to better interpret and frame problems, generate creative solutions, and learn from testing. Embedded within Design Thinking is the assumption that we must think “outside ourselves.”

What you'll learn: This free lunchtime workshop will introduce you to the design thinking process, taught by a design thinking professional that lives and breathes in this space. You'll explore how human-centered design can help develop innovative solutions for the complex challenges we face as businesspeople, non-profit leaders, entrepreneurs, and global citizens.

Takeaways

  • Ideas for how Design Thinking can positively affect your organisation
  • Strategic and tactical ways to “get out of your own head”
  • Methods for understanding and framing problems
  • Discover how to tell a compelling story to engage audiences
  • Identify new ways to serve and support people by uncovering latent needs, behaviours, and desires
