Introduction to Design Thinking

In this hands-on lab, you will learn Design Thinking by doing. Design Thinking is a five-step human-centered problem solving process made famous by David Kelley of IDEO and Stanford University. Design Thinking captures the essence of innovation and puts it into an iterative process. Design Thinking is used by the world’s greatest innovators – Apple’s Steve Jobs, Google, FedEx, GE, as well as leaders in state, city, country government, and educators around the world who are transforming their organizations and culture.
