This class is focused on understanding the basics of design thinking and people-centered problem solving, and on focusing on problem definition in the process of problem solving.
Design Thinking is a people-centred approach to problem solving that helps businesses thrive by developing better relationships and fostering greater trust between people across an organization – from clients to customers to stakeholders to the members of your high performing team. This mini-series of workshops focus on approaching business through Creative Leadership and Design Thinking. They can be taken together as a package or as a choose your own adventure.
Each workshop will present the tools and techniques typically used in various phases of Design Thinking, providing you the opportunity to get hands-on experience with the concepts, start conversations on how to use these ideas to move your organization forward, connect with your community, and create new and innovative services.
