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.
