Practical Design Thinking and Data Models for Agile
• What we'll do Summary: We hear a lot about taking a design-thinking and systems-based approach to Agile, which is great, but what does that really mean to us? How do we apply Design Thinking and Systems-Based Approaches to GSD? In this talk, we'll introduce a simple tool to help us and our teams make the shift toward and improve our design thinking. Then, we'll look at how models can help us take a systems approach to the application of that design-thinking tool. This is the first time the facilitator has tried any of this outside of an undergraduate classroom, so it'll be fun, interactive, rough-edged, conversational, and highly-dependent on everyone pitching in until the time runs out.
