If you haven’t heard of the design thinking process, start here:
IDEO is the mother, father and the godfather of the design thinking process. They created it and developed. They know what difference it can make – as IDEO U their team collaborate with people from around the globe to address social issues in a new way of thinking.
“IDEO U is an online school where anyone can unlock their creative potential and solve complex problems through design thinking. There’s no shortage of challenges to tackle, and we believe the world needs more creative leaders to solve these challenges.
We’re part of IDEO, an award-winning global design firm that takes a human-centered, design-based approach to help organizations innovate and grow. We take a similar approach to online learning at IDEO U. We support and empower our students by giving them a unique set of skills and mindsets they can apply to their day-to-day work.
We’ve designed a playful and collaborative online learning experience that enables individuals, teams, and organizations to see the world differently and solve problems in new ways.”
