Learn to move your projects forward by failing with style.
Design Thinking has become the latest buzzword. In this seminar we will go past the hype and have you create a working app prototype in 90 minutes. The rest of the class is about decomposing this overused concept, based on the experience you get creating the app, to understand how the principles behind it, which are as old as Evolution, continue to drive the best ideas on the planet.
We will teach you how solve real problems in innovative ways by unlearning, breaking, unblocking, and deconstructing the obstacles that stand between you and mind-blowing ideas.
This seminar will teach you to be comfortable with getting it wrong. You will learn the same practical methods and actions which the most innovative entrepreneurs in Silicon Valley use to evolve their ideas into viable solutions to real-world problems.
This is a seminar on innovation that disrupts the concept of innovation itself by applying the key the principle that has made Silicon Valley successful for over 70 years: an inquisitive approach to failure that results in better products, a culture of ingenuity and ultimately, a string of breakthroughs for organizations of all kinds. Buzzwords aside.
