Temat wystąpienia: Over and Under Thinking: The Case Against Design Thinking
Prelegent: Mark Schar, Jeremy Sabol, Stanford University
Webinarium prowadzone w języku ankielskim
Opis: Mark Schar and Jeremy Sabol will be talking about the advantages and disadvantages of design thinking. Design thinking is a powerful tool that can lead to innovation and effective solutions. However, there are times when other kinds of thinking are more appropriate and design thinking may not be helpful. They will discuss when to use design thinking and, maybe, when not to use design thinking. Since design thinking is all about doing not only talking, they are going to engage the audience in the conversation. Some pre-work will be requested.
