Brave New Workplace

Spring 2013 quarter

Cheryl Simrell King public administration
This short course examines working, and work places, from a design thinking perspective.  Design thinking uses design methodologies such as observation, prototyping, building and storytelling, and can be applied to a wide range of people and problems/challenges. It brings together people from different disciplines to effectively explore, in collaboration, human-centered ideas.  Design thinking has been used in forward-thinking organizations and workplaces to maximize workplace values (e.g., collaboration, creativity, motivation, flex-time).  Over the course of the weekend, we'll learn about applying design thinking to working and work places, study cases of innovative design, and work together to apply workplace design in a class project.  This course is applicable for students interested in innovative management practices and human resources.
