In this short introductory workshop, you'll learn and practice the core concepts of Design Thinking pioneered from IDEO—the company that has been honing the methods of a human-centered approach to business for over 40 years.

We’ve designed this program to give you a basic understanding of the foundations of Design Thinking skills and a practical understanding of the proven creative problem solving process.

During this session, our faculty team of design experts will introduce you to the basics of Design Thinking and the key principles of empathizing, defining, ideating, prototyping, and testing solutions to problems.

Who Is It For?

Anyone who finds themselves "stuck in the problem" and looking for a new way to look at things and creatively solve tough problems.
