Are you excited and inspired about design thinking? Are you ready to make a difference at a global scale? Driving design thinking in global organizations is extremely challenging in many ways. Geographically distributed teams pose a particular challenge since many design thinking techniques assume that team members are in the same location. Though it requires more effort, this can be done effectively. This hands-on course will seek to design ways in which virtual teams in large organizations can implement and adopt a design thinking mindset.

Students are expected to come to this class with a basic understanding of and practice with design thinking.
