Join us at the birthplace of design thinking as we explore the principles and processes at the heart of breakthrough innovation. Hosted by Stanford’s Design Impact Program, this half-day Bootcamp will help unlock your creativity and teach you the tools and mindsets that are driving today’s most creative organizations.

Participants will break into small groups, each facilitated by coaches with real-world experience. Our coaches are from top corporations like Google, Boeing, and McKinsey who are now studying in the Design Impact Program. This is not a lecture – it is problem-based learning to give you confidence in your creative abilities.

We will follow proven curriculum developed by noted faculty David Kelley and Bill Burnett. It has been used by leading thinkers and organizations across industries – and is now presented to you by the Design Impact Program. From building empathy and defining problems, to brainstorming ideas to test and prototype, you will learn repeatable processes to unlock breakthrough innovation.

All materials and light breakfast included.
