Discover the Essentials of Design Thinking and Applications within HR


Design thinking is a human-centered approach to defining, investigating and solving complex problems. It refers to a systematic process for structuring a problem, gathering information, and generating creative alternatives or solutions. Design thinking originated in engineering and design settings but has quickly become a highly valued training tool across a range of industries including business, healthcare, education and others.

In this session, participants will learn the phases of the human-centered design thinking process which are: empathize, define, ideate, prototype, and test. Participants will also learn the essential tools and mindsets needed to arrive at innovative solutions through a sample of videos, activities, and applications in Human Resources.
