Decoding Design Thinking


We hear a lot about Design Thinking, but what exactly is it? Join us for an interactive workshop at Google Zürich to Decode what Design Thinking really is. We will learn from the Google UX team about designing products. We’ll work together in small teams and learn how to solve the users’ needs using the Design Sprint methodology. We’ll also discuss how we can apply this process to a challenge of your own.
