Design Thinking 101

In our Design Thinking 101 introductory workshops, we ground your team in the essential skills and mindsets of design thinking and foster team building and collaboration. We’ll lead you through a full design cycle with a pre-assigned, hypothetical problem or “design challenge” as you learn and apply the design thinking process and unlock creativity and innovation in your team.

Offered as 1/2 day, 1 day, and 2 day sessions.

Let’s start planning your workshop.
