More An Intro to Design Thinking

Design is not just a verb – it is a way of thinking. In this session, Kellogg School of Management Professor and IDEO Business Designer David Schonthal will highlight some of the fundamentals of Design Thinking and discuss how they can be applied to everything from products and services to business models. We’ll explore how we can apply these principles across a variety of industries, in small companies and large enterprises alike. You don’t need a background in design or engineering to benefit from this session – you just need a bit of curiosity and a desire to view the world through a more human-centered lens.
