Stanford Center for Professional Development has launched two FREE online Design Thinking courses to public community in April and May of 2016
First Course: Design Thinking = Method, Not Magic
Design thinking gets a lot of buzz for being a “one size fits all” strategic process to drive innovation. In this webinar Bill Burnett, consulting assistant professor and master in design thinking at Stanford University, as he shares three barriers organizations face when adopting an innovative culture and how to overcome them.
Second Course: The Design Thinking Hybrid: An Evolution of Innovation
Design Thinking as a problem-solving method has been prevalent in product design for several decades and has more recently been adapted for business and education. And like any process that has enjoyed that kind of longevity, it must periodically adapt to changes in environment and landscape. As the “business of innovation” becomes increasingly important to strategic decision makers in all sectors and industries and across the globe, we near one of those inflection points.
In this webinar Bill Burnett, consulting assistant professor and master in design thinking at Stanford University, considers current implementations of design thinking and explores ways in which it can be adapted to solve new problems in better ways.
