Design thinking is a mindset to negotiate uncertainty and cultivate innovation.

This introductory seminar will address fundamental processes of design thinking from empathize, define, ideate, prototype, to validate, and explain the differences in terminologies and methodologies from service design, agile prototyping, and lean startup.

Consider this a crash course in design thinking as it applies to your corporate work, your own startup project, or your social enterprise, and a great opportunity to network with participants that are interested in Design and Business.

We will also go over application of design thinking in startup, corporate innovation, social innovation, and urban innovation.

No prior experience or knowledge is required and all with an open mind is welcomed to introduce this mindset to your work or your organization.
