Culture Shift Breakfast: Turning Design Thinking Theory into Action

Special Event
Classroom 1 8:30–10am
  • Regular $25
  • Media Center Members $15

What if you wanted to accomplish your five-year plan in the next six months? What would you need to change to make that happen? Whether you're working on new product development, growing your business, or something internal like culture change, putting design thinking methods into action through a design sprint can accelerate your success. 

Join Erin Joan Lamberty from The Design Gym for a hands-on workshop that will get into the fundamentals of what design sprints are, what’s needed to pull them off, and what types of challenges they’re best for. But the real value will come through an action planning session to create a design sprint format for you and your team – that’s right, we’re getting meta and doing a design sprint on your first design sprint. You’ll walk out with some new friends and a concrete plan for testing design sprints in your organization.
