Workshop: Facilitation by Design (presented by AIGA)

DATE
Thu, May 8, 2014
through Fri, May 9, 2014
DETAILS

This two-day workshop runs from 9am to 5pm on Thursday, May 8 and Friday, May 9.

Learn how to lead design thinking sessions.

Increasingly, organizations need a more integrated approach to business challenges, and designers are often asked to guide diverse groups of organizational leaders, colleagues and community members to develop solutions for big, interconnected problems. The skills required to lead these groups effectively are rarely taught, but as designers’ roles continue to evolve, the ability to successfully facilitate a diverse group and create effective solutions is a critical skill set to master.

This two-day workshop is for professionals who want to gain confidence leading Interdisciplinary problem-solving sessions. Attendees will gain resources, strategies and valuable insights to help them guide people effectively through a collaborative design thinking process.

Read more at www.aiga.org/facilitation-by-design-new-orleans-2014 - AIGA members can take advantage of discounted workshop rates when registering by April 9th.
