Design for Good: Facilitation by Design

Sold Out

Learn how to become a better facilitator and lead design thinking projects. Increasingly, clients need a more integrated approach to design and business challenges, and designers are often asked to guide diverse groups of organizational leaders, colleagues and community members to develop solutions for big, interconnected problems. Yet the skills required to lead these different groups effectively are rarely taught. As designers’ roles, responsibilities and potential for impact continue to evolve, the ability to successfully facilitate a diverse group and create effective solutions across a variety of sectors is a critical skill set to master. This two-day workshop developed and presented by AIGA Design for Good and : by Design is for professionals who want to gain confidence leading collaborations and empower participants to take responsibility for successful outcomes. Attendees will gain resources, strategies and valuable insights to help them guide people effectively through a collaborative design thinking process.
