Course topic: 

This dynamic program offers your team a unique opportunity to master the art—and science—of design thinking and use it to address challenges specific to your work. In these workshops, Stanford's d.school's Perry Klebahn and Jeremy Utley will lead your team through a series of exercises and activities that will get you out of your chairs and working together to apply design thinking to real projects and do it now. Participants are encouraged to get out of their chairs and on their feet—take risks, try new behaviors—and work together to generate creative solutions. 

Overview

Get your team into the "Innovation at Work" mindset! In this workshop, Perry and Jeremy will show you some valuable techniques and approaches to generate new ideas, and lots of them.

You won't just be listening to them talk through examples and demonstrate how to use them. You and your team will be on your feet, post-its and markers in hand, as Jeremy and Perry help you apply 4 key tools to your projects in real time:

  • "Yes and..." to defer judgment and build on each other
  • Constraints to generate volume
  • Analogous situations to take you to new territory
  • Selection criteria to choose the ideas you will take forward

By the end of this session, you will have a reserve of viable ideas ready for prototyping.
