In this active workshop you will bring ideas for change within your department and learn a creative problem solving approach to translate those new ideas into action. The key to a good problem solving process is identifying and defining the right problem to solve.
Note: Please bring a work problem you have the passion and ability to address and we’ll use a simple framework to move to effective solution.
Design thinking is a deeply human process that taps into abilities we all have but get over-looked by more conventional problem-solving practices. Design thinking requires an experimental, collaborative, and optimistic mindset. We define mindset as the ideas and attitudes with which a person approaches a situation. This workshop will familiarize you with the Design Thinking Mindset in action by immersing you in an in-class design thinking experiment.
