Dr. Andrea Buchholz & Petra Newrly: Design Thinking for Beginners

Friday, March 2, 2018, 9:15 am

Design Thinking has become more than just a creative process. What was originally developed as an innovation method for products and services in Stanford has now become a completely new way of seeing people in terms of work. The brilliance of Design Thinking is in its way of facilitating new and surprising forms of creative collaboration. »We« intelligence is the new keyword. Potential problem solutions are developed in day-to-day work, especially if integrated solutions that are proximal to users are required.
Andrea Buchholz and Petra Newrly from the MFG Baden-Württemberg explain how this works and is applied in detail during this two-hour workshop. The individual process steps of the Design Thinking method are explained and explored through practical exercises.

Maximum number of participants: 20
