Agile Philly meeting will be on November 13 ( one week earlier ) since the Fourth Thursday of Thanksgiving will conflict with the 3rd Tuesday of November. (Boy, does that sound like the setup for a punchline! )
Tentatively, we have our own Tiffany Powley talking about Design Thinking
Design thinking is a method for the practical, creative resolution of problems using the strategies designers use during the process of designing. Design thinking has also been developed as an approach to resolve issues outside of professional design practice, such as in business and social contexts.
The design thinking process has various stages including: defining the problem, researching, forming ideas, prototyping and testing. The steps can occur simultaneously and be repeated.The development of creativity techniques in the 1950s and new design methods in the 1960s led to the idea of design thinking as a particular approach to creatively solving problems.
