Join Us For An Introductory Class in Design Thinking using urban transportation the case study.

 

OVERVIEW

If you want to learn how to create products and services that solve real customer problems, then join us at this hands-on workshop. We will use urban transportion models as our case study: uber, lyft, divvy, bike lanes.

Design Thinking is a framework that creates new value when one is able to bring three intersecting capabilities together. In this workshop we will use a real life example of how to (1) discover real human needs, (2) evaluate the technology capabilities to solve these needs, and (3) evaluate the feasibility of implementing.
