Think like a designer, no matter your background.
Approaching problem-solving from a fresh perspective is more critical than ever. Terms like “Design Thinking” and “Human-Centered Design” have been floating around the business world with little to no grounding. Take the “buzz” out of the buzzwords to understand how these principles can apply to non-designer work environments.
In this course, we will differentiate between a designer’s process and mindset to help participants shift from knowledge to action. By learning about empathy, Design Thinking, and Human-Centered Design, participants will better understand how to create products, services, and experiences that truly satisfy people’s needs.
