This workshop is ideal for anyone who seeks to accelerate innovation within their organization, is interested in Human-Centered Design, or who wants to improve their skills in these areas. Ideal participants are experienced professionals in positions of influence within their organization, who can see the opportunity and aspire to create a culture of innovation.

INNOVATION IS CRUCIAL for most organizations, yet few people are equipped to innovate with confidence. Human-Centered Design can help. The discipline of developing solutions in service of people greatly increases the likelihood of truly innovative results. Whether you’re looking to grow a culture of innovation throughout your organization, prepare a team to be innovation catalysts, or just improve your own capabilities, this workshop is a great place to start.
This 3-day workshop introduces participants to the LUMA System of Innovating for People—a flexible framework for practicing Human-Centered Design. Through a dynamic mix of lectures and hands-on activities, you will learn a versatile system that:
• Provides your teams with a repeatable way to innovate
• Helps you get more out of your direct customer research
• Measurably impacts your product development efforts
• Promotes productive interdisciplinary collaboration
• creative, effective alternatives to traditional brainstorming
