GPCB593 - Intro to Design Thinking

Part of the StartupReady program

Brainstorming is a process that helps your team to generate innovative ideas. If a brainstorming session is not well planned and facilitated, it runs the risk of wasting everyone’s time. What makes a great brainstorming session, and more importantly, what drives a session to produce some truly great results?

Through practice and discussion, using the principles of Design Thinking, you will learn how to design and run an effective brainstorming session to move your projects forward. Additionally, you will improve your team collaboration and facilitation skills through the team activities in this workshop.
