Innovation is as essential as it is difficult. Organizational cultures capable of "inventing the future" are rare, but the discipline of design provides people with tools and techniques to think differently, see new opportunities, and create impactful, innovative solutions. ExperienceInnovation™, built in collaboration with celebrated design consultancy IDEO, is an expert-guided workshop that explores the fundamentals of IDEO's design thinking approach and participants will tackle a business challenge in a team-based competition. Outcomes: Improved confidence and competence in innovation efforts, and foundational knowledge of design thinking to apply to real-world challenges. Faculty: Dr. Leigh Shamblin
