You've probably heard about design thinking—maybe you've read an article or watched an online video. But then what? How do you apply the principles and make an impact? How are companies actually applying design thinking, and what business results come from it? Design thinking is not just a trendy buzzword; it's a proven and practical method to create human-centered solutions.

During part 1 of a two-part webcast series, Keith Keating, senior director of Global Learning Strategies, shares a thorough look into the principles of design thinking in an easy-to-understand format. Using practical examples and stories, this webcast will provide you with a solid foundational understanding of design thinking and ideas for ways you can apply it within your own organization.

He will help you jump-start your transformative journey from being a theoretical learner to a design thinking practitioner.

In this webcast, you will learn about:

  • the value of design thinking and why more companies aren't using it
