June 20, 2018 | Design Thinking for Business Innovation
You don’t need to be a designer to think like one. The design thinking principles can be applied to any situation to create successful business strategies. This workshop introduces and elaborates on the tools and practice modes of Design Thinking and the theory behind it with an emphasis on business innovation and the desired outcomes for the customer. Through a human centered lens, participants will follow the design phases of empathize, define, ideate, prototype, and test, to seek design solutions for their business challenges. Upon completion of the workshop participants will understand the main concepts of design thinking and learn to use it as an approach to problem solving.
