Design Thinking for Nonprofit Leaders
Leading a non-profit requires creative problem solving. From working with others to generate solutions to developing a system for implementing, testing, and improving solutions, successful approaches require the best of our analytic and creative thinking. Design thinking is a problem-solving approach that is particularly well-suited for addressing the human-centered challenges that many nonprofit organizations face because it brings together both the social and systematic dimensions of problem solving.
Through this workshop Rachel Brozenske of Allison Partners brings together her background in design and facilitation to offer a practical guide to implementing design thinking strategies into your organization. At the conclusion of the workshop, you will be able to:
• Describe design thinking and its complementary contributions to problem-solving,
• Frame and explore challenges in ways that foster empathy and inspire potential solutions,
• Facilitate collaborative conversations that engage and align multiple stakeholder perspectives, and
• Use prototypes and experiments to efficiently test ideas and solicit actionable feedback.
This workshop should appeal to board members, executive directors, and team leaders as well any one looking to develop their skills as a creative problem solver.
