*Special Program* Harnessing the Power of Design Thinking for Nonprofits

Tuesday, August 29, 2017 10:00 am - 11:30 am  ET
In-person | Washington, DC

Join us for an innovation workshop and learn creative strategies to manifest your ideas. Whether you are thinking of starting a nonprofit or have been running one for years, this workshop is for you. We will use human centered design and improv to brainstorm and problem solve.

This workshop will be centered on your end-user. How do they define your products and services? What do they value? What do they want? You will learn how to co-create with your end-user to rebuild and reiterate your organization's offerings.

We believe that an agile culture and end-user focus is the best way to: identify opportunities, create customer value, and drive growth.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn how to lead end-user interviews.
  • Experiment with a variety of innovative facilitation and brainstorming techniques that will enable you to get the most out of your ideas.
  • Create an innovative organizational culture
