What are we going to do?

The 21st-century workforce is unique; people have endless options for learning in the ways that best meet their needs. Yet many of the design and development models in L&D are decades old. That’s where design thinking comes in.

Design thinking is a modern approach to creative problem-solving that’s iterative, collaborative, and experimental. And it’s also fun!

Join this workshop to explore an entire design thinking cycle. You will work through every stage of the process, applying and adapting best practices that will work for you and your organization, including user interviews, prototyping, and iterative design. You will see how this unique approach can stimulate ideas for creative, human-centered solutions that fit the modern workplace.
