Monday November 4, 2019, 1:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. at the Frederick County Chamber of Commerce (118 N Market St, Suite 200, Frederick, MD 21701)
Design Thinking is a process for creative problem solving even if you don’t think you are creative.
Some of the world’s leading brands, such as IBM, Apple, Google, Samsung and GE, have adopted the Design Thinking approach, and Design Thinking is being taught at leading universities around the world, including Stanford, Harvard and MIT. But what exactly is it and why is it so popular?
♦ The Design Thinker makes empathy for business needs part of a broader context together with human needs and desires
♦ Design Thinking shifts the focus from a pure technical solution to a human solution
♦ Design Thinking’s mission is to seamlessly translate technology into human value
Design Thinking is about human problem solving including the business or technical problem. They all need to be viewed together, iterated together, resolved together. At its core, Design Thinking is a formalized practice solving human needs as holistically as possible, with the full spectrum of success criteria in mind. Design Thinking is a deeply collaborative approach.
The event is free for Frederick Chamber Members and $10 for the public.
