    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 lifecycle 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 the 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!

    Learning Objectives:

    • Understand the importance of correct specifications for customer satisfaction
    • Define design thinking and how it applies to project management
    • Explain the role of customer empathy in design thinking
    • Practice design thinking tools to apply to your job and to your life
