Workshop: How to Tackle Intractable Problems

  • Thursday - 3:35 PM - 4:00 PM

“That’s just how we do it here.” “I don’t know why we do it that way.” Sound familiar? Maintaining processes and systems seems simpler but ultimately holds us back. In this session, discover a method for identifying and breaking down real-life relatable problems and learn a design-thinking-based process to turn big, hairy projects into manageable pieces. Bring one of the big problems that’s blocking your progress, like breaking down silos, and be ready to start making a plan for how to tackle it.
