You had your Design Thinking Training, now what?
A lot of professionals are familiar with Design Thinking, but what is stopping them from implementing it is a lack of clarity about what practices to apply. How do you connect problem finding with Design Thinking to problem solving? How do you take the best ideas and apply them to the real problem?
This workshop will teach you how to apply the Agile methodology to Design Thinking's findings to create real-life solutions.  Design Thinking and Agile emphasize people over processes and encourage teamwork.
