    Topic Description:  Design Thinking in Project Management

    Without knowing the right problem to solve, a project might be completed within budget and on time, yet totally miss the mark in creating the desired outcome and quality of the product of the project.  Design thinking is a creative problem-solving methodology that involves first and foremost the customer’s perspective.  Project managers can use design thinking tools throughout the project life cycle to gather and assess stakeholder requirements, identify alternatives, and address technical issues.  Design thinking methodology also forces the project team to focus on the customer during evolution and development of the final result of the project.

    In this presentation, project managers will learn how to apply design thinking tools to improve the customer experience and more accurately meet the project objectives.  Beware – active participation is a requirement!

    This Session Qualifies for:
