Design-led companies create a competitive advantage by going beyond simply fixing known customer pain points. To truly innovate and create breakthrough product ideas, companies need to take a user-centered approach and embed customer feedback throughout product development.

This interactive workshop is a crash-course, quick immersion in developing a user-centered mindset--from fundamental concepts behind design thinking to practical tools and techniques. Some topics we’ll cover include:

• Embedding Design Thinking as a mindset and practice to drive innovation
• The role of empathy and taking a human-centric approach to uncovering unmet needs of users
• Approaches to co-creation with your team and rapid prototyping

At the conclusion of this workshop you’ll feel confident in your ability to start practicing user-centered principles at your own organization.
