Winter Xcelerate Presents: Design Thinking with Lance Katikbak

Human-Centered Design, or Design Thinking, is a structured process for innovation that was pioneered by IDEO, the world's largest design consultancy, and the Stanford Hasso Plattner Institute of Design. HCD is built upon the insights that products and services should be designed around specific user needs, and should be prototyped and tested extensively before deployment. In this workshop, you will learn the basics of HCD, and will learn how to make sure that the products and services that you working on are tied to actual problems that people face.
