Now more than ever, leaders recognize the value of creativity and its role in organizational successes.

With an emphasis on research, ideation and prototyping, design thinking helps teams leverage their collective expertise to achieve innovative solutions to challenging problems. Leaders will work in teams to solve a complex problem while applying the entire design thinking process. This seminar is unique in that it embraces multiple academic perspectives (design and design theory, organizational behavior and social psychology) to provide participants with a rich, hands-on learning experience. The overarching goal is to provide leaders with the skills and knowledge they need to use design thinking in their own teams and organizations.
