Design Thinking 101

Join Us For An Introductory Class in Design Thinking



If you want to learn how to create products and services that solve real customer problems, then join us at this hands-on workshop. 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. 



This event is sponsored and co-hosted by Thomas Interior Systems.

Your fee includes food, drinks, and all materials needed.
