"Design Thinking"

presented by Ron Gagnier

Presentation summary

 Why are so many CEO’s and business leaders getting on the design thinking bandwagon? It’s because design, when done well, has a way of transforming an organization.  Design driven organizations are always thinking about their customers needs and goals and building better products to serve them.  Due to this customer focus, organizations typically out-perform their competitors.

 How do you apply the tenets of design thinking in a project?  Come and learn through this hands-on workshop the basics of design thinking. All you need to bring is a pen and a willingness to participate and share your ideas.
