Running Design Thinking, Collaboration, and Rapid Prototyping Work Sessions - A Workshop on Running Design Workshops

Good design work requires a multi-faceted cross-disciplinary team working together to identify problems and test solutions. One great way to get that team moving is with a design thinking working session, and many UX practitioners in organizations from enterprises to startups to agencies need to able to effectively run these sessions to be effective.

In this half-day workshop we'll review and test best-practices for running design thinking and rapid prototyping sessions. We'll give specific attention to topics such as:

  • Recruiting the right team
  • Running the right exercises
  • Getting people involved, especially if they're uncomfortable
  • Getting the most out of prototypes
  • Quickly and efficiently testing and iterating on ideas

This workshop is for anyone who wants to get better at facilitating design thinking workshops and getting more out of a cross-disciplinary team. Attendees will walk away with a game plan for how to recruit and run a workshop, and some solid experience from practicing with their peers.
