Outside-in communications: The design thinking toolkit

A session at TCUK 2015 | Technical Communication UK

  • Murray Cox

Tuesday 29th September, 2015

9:30am to 12:30pm (GMT)

In this session you'll be introduced to some of the techniques in the design thinkers toolkit.

There's no need for laptops as one of the key tenets of design thinking is learning by doing. Practical is the watchword here.

Design thinking emphasises the value of uncritical idea generation, and building on the ideas of others. You will be asked to stand and to participate. It might feel chaotic or uncomfortable, and that's when the magic will start to happen.

The idea is to showcase a handful of the dozens of tools and techniques that can help design thinkers solve problems, gain insights or innovate.
