Accelerating Innovation Using Human-Centered Design: A Seminar

Posted by Plish on October 11, 2013

If you’d like to learn more about Human-Centered Design, and how it can power your innovation efforts be sure to check out DMI’s seminar, powered by friends over at the LUMA Institute.

Developing Effective Action Plans for Accelerated Innovation is being held Chicago on November 14th at the IIT Institute of Design.  The seminar will introduce participants to:

…a versatile system for innovating with speed and agility. It is a hands-on workshop featuring an organized framework for Human-Centered Design methods and a corresponding series of collaborative planning exercises.

(Specifically participants will learn: )

  • A practical construct for repeatable innovation
  • Deeper competence in the practice of Human-Centered Design
  • A collaborative approach to drafting action plans
  • Ways to enhance an existing process
  • Ways to establish a new process

Each participant will also receive a copy of LUMA’s Handbook of Human-Centered Design Methods  as well as the Planning Cards based upon the handbook.  I’ve got the Handbook in my library and I can say first hand it’s a great resource and should be in the library of anyone doing Human-Centered Design.  (I’m planning on adding the cards to my collection as well 🙂 )

The interactive seminar is being led by Bill Lucas.  Bill has 25 years of design chops informing the seminar you’ll experience.  He’s fun, engaging, and a heck of nice guy. (Tell him I say “Hi!”  if you go.)

For Registration info click here.  If you can’t make it to Chicago, be sure to check out the LUMA site for other workshops and seminars.  They are always busy putting the education into innovation.

Oh, and if you do go, I’d love to hear your thoughts!
