If you’ve seen the listing for our Weekend Workouts and thought “who has a whole weekend for that?” This is our answer: Over the course of one evening session and a full-day workshop, we’ll cover the essentials of Design Thinking and how to start using it in your work and life.
We’ll talk about how anyone can use the design process to approach their problems – any problem. We’ll talk about how understanding the context and constraints of a problem can help you discover the keys to a solution and show examples from real-world challenges.
We’ll teach you the best ways to do real-world research and how to use the information you get from real people to help create better solutions. We’ll learn how to rapidly ideate, how to sort our ideas to create more ideas, and to how to present our ideas and concepts to teams. You’ll walk away with an actionable understanding of design process, storytelling and presentation techniques.
We feel the most important part of learning the design process is real life practice, so that is exactly what we’re bringing you. We’ll be working with the problems and constraints of a real company.
The Design Gym is founded and run by a group of friends who use these skills every day. We practice in Fortune 500 companies, top design strategy firms, and global social investment organizations. We’ve worked with the good, the bad, and the ugly and want to share what we’ve learned along the way. Get the bios on the website.
