Seminar Overview:

Innovation thrives in a crisis.

The scale of the impact caused by the current pandemic is staggering. The companies that survive and thrive will necessarily be the most nimble and innovative. Design Thinking is the ideal approach to identifying need, clarifying problems and taking the risk out of innovation.

Learning from the best, and the worst.

Design Thinking reminds us that we don’t know everything and we never will. This sobering realization underpins the two vital instincts Design Thinkers have. They iterate, and they ask.
The World Economic Forum identified three vital skills the world’s leading organizations will need in the world beyond 2020: complex problem solving, critical thinking and creativity. Design Thinking encompasses these skills with a human centered approach to delivering value.
This online workshop will not be a lecture, it will be hands on and interactive. Together we will explore successes and failures at Tesla, SpaceX, Boeing, NASA, and Steelcase. How did they apply Design Thinking instincts, and what price they paid when they didn’t?
