  • You have heard “Design Thinking”, which has been taken up by Apple and Google and become widely known among business person as the methodology for generating innovations. Although its 5 steps of method; Empathize, Define, Ideate, Prototype and Test, should be famous, core of this methodology should be to understand the concepts of both “Creative Confidence; anybody can be creative” and “User Centric; thinking started from users’ point of view”. How you actually do should be thought by you. Design Thinking, from this sense, should be standard “concept”, not “how to” in order to create new value.
  • Purpose of this workshop are to learn essence about Design Thinking methodology. Specifically, the students will be requested to engage in finding and solving issues through pro-active works including discussions and presentation by team.
