Course Overview

With the boom of unicorns in Silicon Valley and beyond, innovation has become more than merely a mantra, but rather a necessity, especially for the usually slower to adopt novelties corporations. In this short class, we will go through the basics of innovation - design thinking and we will engage in a one day Design Sprint to tackle a real life problem from defining it to prototyping it. Design thinking is a human-centered process utilized by many of today’s most creative and competitive organizations to understand better consumer needs and behaviors. With an emphasis on research, ideation and prototyping, design thinking helps teams leverage their collective expertise to achieve innovative solutions to challenging problems. We will get some hands-on experience with several design thinking tools and thinking modes and see first-hand the process behind how startups innovate and create products and services. We will also spend some time discussing what’s hindering us to adopt innovative ways of thinking in our workplaces and come with some ideas of how to overcome these hurdles. This is an interactive class that we cross our fingers to be able to do offline together.
