Design Thinking Class with Bobby Hughes

  • General Assembly

ABOUT THE EVENT

A rapid hands-on workshop to understand and explore Design Thinking…a powerful set of tools for creating meaningful, valuable products and well-considered customer experiences.

As a product manager, you need ways to consistently and confidently tackle uncharted territory, generate bold ideas, and develop solutions relentlessly focused on customer needs.  Leading your team to great products also means keeping them aligned, working together, and having a good time while doing it so they keep coming back for more.
Come get hands on with Design Thinking- a process that will ground your product development efforts and stimulate your team to create meaningful, valuable products and experiences that truly delight your customers.  It’s time you became the leader you’ve always wanted to be.  Come get the tools that will take you there.
