Where do your thoughts come from in the world of thinking? How does your thinking impact how you interact in your world? John Furey, Founder of the MindTime Project (mindtime.com (http://mindtime.com/)) will challenge how you think about cross-functional collaboration. Understanding how people’s thoughts are formed can give you huge insights into both the customers you’re designing for as well as the people involved in your design process—and their influence on your work. You will be able to gleen new value in your team's perspectives as well as learn how to use MindTime to better understand your customers.
Stick around after John's talk to participate in a charrette (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charrette) where we will workshop a challenging design problem and put co-design techniques into practice.
Join us for an evening of creativity and learning! Tasty food and ebullient beverages provided.
