What is Design Thinking?

In a keynote address to the Organization Development Network, renowned consultant Peter Block encouraged attendees to “integrate Design Thinking into your 21st century work”. But what does that mean for OD, HR, and L&D professionals? How might you incorporate Design Thinking into your practice?


Design Thinking is a process of iteration and collaboration most often applied to the creation of new products and services. But its similarities to organization development, in both principle and practice, means it can be applied to broader set of challenges and opportunities. This 90-min interactive session will explore the design thinking approach with emphasis on how it can strengthen organizations.


Participants in this 90-min experiential session will:


1. Develop an applied understanding of the design thinking approach

2. Practice the five key steps of design thinking in real-time

3. Explore its use as an organization development method

4. Leave with concrete next steps to experiment with Design Thinking further


There will be a follow-on half-day workshop, which will go more in depth on Monday, October 30th from 9 AM to noon at Mercer Island Community Center.


Note: In preparation for this session, we recommend reading the presenter’s article


"Design + Organization Development: Three Steps on the Bridge to the Other Side" published by the Design Management Institute (2015) and available online via: http://goo.gl/bnBRin.
