    Design Thinking: From Concept to Practice

    Spring has officially sprung, and we are celebrating the season with a topic related to creativity and new ideas: design thinking.  Join us for an interactive session to explore this intriguing approach to conceptualizing problems and creating solutions.  

    You’ve heard of the term “design thinking,” but what does that really mean?  This interactive session will give you an overview of design thinking as a concept and provide real life examples of how design thinking principles have been implemented.  You will also have hands-on practice on how to put yourself in a design thinking mind-set with an engaging activity you can use with your own teams.
