Design Thinking Workshop with Tricia Okin


Create, Explore and Build Consensus in Your Teams Using Design Thinking

Get an overview of design thinking, how it’s used in organizations, and some short exercises you can take home with you.

Design thinking methodologies aren't just for user experience designers and researchers. It’s a framework that helps people generate and explore ideas among a group and eventually build a consensus that pushes concepts forward while understanding the human problems that drive innovation. It gives practitioners a way to produce ideas and evaluate on a level playing field. At this point in time, ensuring everyone’s ideas are heard or implemented will go a long way towards making progress.

You can use design thinking within organizations to get buy-in from key stakeholders or even as an individual when working through your own projects. In this session, you’ll get an overview of design thinking, how it’s used in organizations, and some short exercises you can take home with you. 

During this workshop, you’ll work in teams of 3 – 5 to design for a particular problem or societal challenge. 

Who is this for? 

This 3-hour workshop is suitable for anyone who’d like to:

  • Get a taster as to what design thinking is and what it can do.
  • Reframe how they perceive customer and user issues into human problems that need to be addressed. 
  • Learn some strategies to be more inclusive when ideating. 
  • Understand how to add another tool to their design toolkit and expand their options.
