Power of Insights: How to Bring Structure to Chaos Through Design Thinking|
Spring 2016 not offered
This is an action-based course where students learn how to build, recognize, and communicate insights. Why insights? Insights are core to the design-thinking process or any problem-solving approach that brings human needs to the forefront because they tell us something valuable and new. Through a series of case studies and weekly in-class challenges, students will work to create their own insights and also put into action ideas from existing businesses. Students will leave the course with the necessary confidence to identify and create powerful insights making them more effective creative problem solvers.
