LEADERSHIP THROUGH DESIGN INNOVATION MOOC

In our capacity as designers in residence at Northwestern University, we led the development of The Segal Design Institute's first massive open online course (MOOC), called Leadership through Design Innovation.

 

The four-week course through Coursera offers a glimpse into the mindsets, methods and tools that make up the design innovation process, and how to integrate these elements to be a more effective leader. Over 6,000 learners from 131 countries have learned how to engage with end users, effectively frame problems, identify potential solutions, and build prototypes to test assumptions and learn what works (and doesn’t).  

 

It's an honor to get to share the subject we love with people all over the world, and hear how it's impacting them.

“Fantastic course. I've been using the rapid prototyping principles at work and it has had immediate payoffs.”
