Course Description

Design thinking is a unique, non-linear approach to considering problems. This methodology is particularly well suited to address tough challenges facing business and even tackle society’s most intractable “wicked problems” to produce innovative and thought-provoking solutions. Design thinking’s key strength is its emphasis on reframing to solving the right problem. Develop the design thinking mindset through the introduction of the human-centered design and creative problem-solving approach which offers the promise of new, more effective solutions.
