Blade's a Sr. Lecturer at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and teaches undergraduates, and professionals about design thinking and leadership. Blade Kotelly will teach your executives and practitioners how to be more creative and more innovative in a 1/2-day to 4-day class.
Why you need this
To innovate successfully, engineers need to know how to think like a designer when approaching engineerings task alone and within teams, and when leading teams. By applying a design-centered approach, engineers are able to conceive of radically innovative solutions, deeply understand who the real stakeholders are and what they care about, create vision that gets buy-in from senior management and colleagues, avoid hazards, and create solutions that people love both emotionally and intellectually.
What you'll learn
Using a 10-step design process and a 3-step vision creation and communication process, students experience the design process first hand in this interactive class that will expand your thinking and help students and their teams create more powerful solutions. Students learn how to create materials that align technical and non-technical audiences, understand the vital importance of the psychology behind how people interact with technology, how to manage creativity, and how to assess the effectiveness of their solutions.
