- Event Details
– – what:
The University of Texas at Austin’s Human Dimensions of Organizations and School of Design and Creative Technologies are teaming up to deliver two design thinking workshops in 2019.
Learning new skills, or upskilling, is essential to excelling in today’s workplace. The problems we encounter in our professional lives—losing customers, broken processes, products that don’t have the impact we hope—need creative, innovative solutions if our organizations are to stay relevant.
The same holds true for our more complex social issues – poverty, healthcare, education, and the environment. Design thinking offers ways to upskill so that you can develop creative solutions to the problems you most care about.
– – when:
The first workshop will run in mid-April and is for a general audience. The second workshop will run in August and is designed specifically for educators, including K-12 teachers and administrators.
– – why:
Design thinking is transformative. It challenges you to confront problems from radically different perspectives and it offers a framework for developing creative solutions to those problems. Design-led organizations outperform their competitors on the S&P 500 by more than 200 percent!
