Course Description

This hands-on short course will teach participants who already have an application-based, working knowledge of design thinking (AKA human-centered design) how to plan, prepare for, and lead design thinking work sessions that people will love. It will explore the significant differences between practicing design thinking and leading and facilitating teams through productive, enjoyable, engaging work sessions that leverage design thinking methodologies.
