About this session

Many innovation initiatives within organizations begin with an introductory training to methodologies like Design Thinking. Teaching design thinking as an approach to problem solving to those without design background has its roots in Silicon Valley context. However, practices that work well in one context, may not resonate with another context, if not adapted.

In this session I will discuss the problem with the one-size-fits-all approach to teaching design thinking. Drawing from design literature, cross-cultural research, innovation research, and my experience in different international settings, I will discuss some of the issues that may arise in different cultural contexts, and suggest methods and tools to address them.

The session includes 40 min. talk and 20 min. answering some of your questions. Here is the link to the ZOOM meeting:
