This session focuses on doing and making and is about using a ‘design’ process in approaching problems you will face in an established organization or as an entrepreneur.

What you will learn:
* What is user-centered design
* How to start with empathy instead of solutions
* How to define a nuanced problem and point of view for your design
* How to ideate and brainstorm
* How to prototype like a wizard (No drawing or building skills required!)
* How to test your prototype and rinse+repeat

This is an effective way to help your team; clients and colleagues get out of the comfort zone, and innovate - Come with an open mind and lots of energy.

Networking and a continental breakfast begins at 7:30 am with the program beginning at 8:00 am.

Your forum committee,
Alice Waagen, Philip Martin, Bill Cocolis, and Todd  Slater
