Design Thinking Workshop: Second Edition
After a successful pilot of our Design Thinking Workshop in August, we knew we had to come back for more.
We had an incredible full attendance from across the company, and Pablo Manzoni, leader of our UI/UX team, did a fantastic job leading the workshop.
Design Thinking is all about taking a step back from the problem at hand, rethinking it from a different perspective, and looking at it as if it were an experience rather than just another project. It’s about understanding the problem before trying to solve it.
It all starts with a user-centered mindset. You have to understand the user and their needs, and then you can start discovering how you can create solutions that matter. In short, if you understand the problem you have half of the solution!
Design Thinking is a flexible and iterative process that encourages you to experiment and be playful with your ideas. It's not just a linear process, so don't worry if you try something new and it doesn't work! Keep trying until you find something that does work for your project or problem.
That’s why we decided to create a space for our collaborators for reflection and dialogue as a team. We wanted them to learn how to tackle challenges by approaching them creatively.
This was a great opportunity for our team to connect with each other and learn more about how we can collaborate effectively in our day-to-day work. Kaizen is an open environment where all ideas are welcome, and events like these help us stay connected as a team.
