Most people are introduced to design thinking via "the process" or "a process" -- the steps and procedure of using the design approach to problem-solving. This is very useful in many ways, however we believe a deeper practice and mindset are necessary to have the most success using design thinking. In other words, beyond the design process, a designerly way of being is also needed. This is true for an individual, a team, and a company/organization. The LECTURE aims to discuss some of these 'designerly ways' and various aspects of design thinking that go beyond process.
In the meantime, all participants to the follloing workshop of "Design Challenge" are being requested to join the LECTURE as well.
