Design Thinking 101

In our Design Thinking 101 workshops, we ground your team in the essential skills and mindsets of design thinking. 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.
