Re/Frame problems to uncover solutions workshop with Shri Jambhekar & Mary Grace Whalen
One of the first steps to finding a creative solution is to know the problem. David and Tom Kelly, of IDEO and Stanford D School, in their book Creative Confidence recommend keeping a running list of things that annoy. Rather than being an exercise in negativity it can lead to opportunities. In this workshop you will examine existing apps using the Osborn method to frame or reframe a problem statement and solve for it.
The workshop will use "Geofencing" as our example. The 1.5 hour workshop include hands on sketching, prototyping, and group collaboration. Anyone involved in software product design and web designers or developers will find this workshop helpful and productive.
Time: 10:30 AM Duration: 1.5 hours
