Design Thinking for Innovative Problem Solving

Dates & Times: February 3-5, 2021 (9:00am-4:00pm)
Location: Online

Now more than ever, leaders recognize the value of creativity and its role in organizational successes. Enter design thinking — a human-centered process utilized by many of today’s most creative and competitive organizations. With an emphasis on research, ideation and prototyping, design thinking helps teams leverage their collective expertise to achieve innovative solutions to challenging problems. Leaders will work in teams to solve a complex problem while applying the entire design thinking process. This seminar is unique in that it embraces multiple academic perspectives (design and design theory, organizational behavior and social psychology) to provide participants with a rich, hands-on learning experience. The overarching goal is to provide leaders with the skills and knowledge they need to use design thinking in their own teams and organizations.

In our Design Thinking for Innovative Problem Solving course, learn how to leverage research, ideation, and prototyping to tackle even the hardest business challenges. Collaborate with industry peers and explore creative approaches to problem solving, while learning the basics of design thinking methodology.

Design Thinking for Innovative Problem Solving can be taken as a stand alone course or as a prerequisite for the Executive Certificate in Innovation and Human-Centered Design
