Virginia Volunteerism and Service Annual Conference - Presenter: Chris Bennett
Albert Einstein is quoted to have said "We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.” So how can we think differently about the challenges facing our organizations? Utilizing “design thinking” is one effective way to change our perspectives. Design thinking is about identifying and working within given constraints to arrive at innovative and generative solutions. In this hands-on workshop, participants will explore design thinking through a fun-filled gamified experience to address complex problems and social ills. Participants will walk away with practical and actionable design tools that can be applied with teams to solve problems in their context.
