What we're about

This Meetup is for those of us who want to lead, appreciate design thinking and innovation, and value being part of a community of intentional practitioners.

It's organized by the team behind New Haircut (http://newhaircut.com), a product innovation group.

From 2010 - 2018, New Haircut was an app dev studio struggling to create products people used, let alone loved. In late 2015, hungry to improve our process, team culture, and ability to create meaningful user-centered experiences we started experimenting with design sprints.

Today, we've come to understand that design thinking is not a set of tools or methods, but a mindset that unlocks an organization's ability to create and innovate, as well as how it builds culture and defines teamwork.

We created this group to share what we've learned, and to create a community that allow us to continue experimenting and learning from one another.

And because we believe that true learning only happens by doing, our events will always be:

• Interactive (hands-on) workshops, Q&As, and design sessions

• A place to learn from innovation leaders -- within product and design, and otherwise

We hope this resonates with you and that you'll join to share what you've learned.
