9:00 AM CASE STUDY: Sharing is Caring: Why Evangelizing Design Thinking is the only way to Succeed

Is your organization trying to integrate a design thinking capability, but doesn’t have enough expert resources to ensure the methodology is properly followed? Are you nervous that if you share design thinking with too many people who aren’t experts it may become diluted? Are you afraid that if others are successful in practicing design thinking your practice will become obsolete?
During this session, learn how a two-woman team organically grew design thinking throughout their organization in one year, and how their success in sharing it actually keeps them relevant.
o    It is OK to ‘give it away’ when it comes to design thinking
o    Your job won’t become obsolete once others know how to utilize design thinking
o    People don’t forget the experts
