Have You Considered "Design Thinking?"

August 6, 2016


Design thinking is a very powerful way to solve challenges - in the workplace. In far away places. In classrooms.


We used design thinking in my former school district to address issues with our bell schedule. After convening a diverse team to work on the project, comprised of teachers, classified staff, administrators, students and parents, we set out to:


- build empathy and explore it


- consider prototypes


- test the prototypes


- select two and further vet them publicly


- assess the effectiveness of one, try it, and then reassess implementation


The community input and presentation phase was critically important and, in our scenario, brought back part of a master schedule that we had eliminated in our prototype design phases.
