Albert Einstein said, “We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.” So, what do we do about it? This talk is about how to change your point of view and your approach to solving problems. Design Thinking is a user-centered and prototype-driven process that helps practitioners approach complex problems in new ways. Although it’s rooted in the field of design, you don’t need any prior design experience to learn and use the Design Thinking methodology. In her presentation, Stefanie Norvaisas, director of design strategy and research at Design Concepts, will give attendees tips on how to take the first steps or continue their journey in becoming design thinkers. Stefanie will explain the Design Thinking process and leave audience members with some simple approaches they can use to solve problems big and small at their nonprofits.
