Day 1 of 5: PMI UNY, PMI LI, PMI HV and Barkley Consulting Group: Design Thinking Workshop
In partnership with Jeff Warren, President of the Barkley Consulting Group, along with the PMI Long Island Chapter and the PMI Hudson Valley Chapter, the Upstate New York PMI Chapter is pleased to offer a Virtual Design Thinking Workshop. The virtual workshop will take place over 5 days this Fall, each day consisting of ~2.5-to-3-hour sessions.
Design Thinking is a human-centered approach towards problem-solving that sees a problem from the eyes of the end-user—the consumer, the employee, the partner. It is a way of thinking that embraces empathy, inspires creativity, and encourages experimentation to create solutions that meet the needs of the audience for whom you are designing. Over the course of the workshop, participants will be part of a small team to work through the five stages of Design Thinking: empathy, definition, ideation, prototyping, and testing. This workshop will be conducted to teach Project Managers how to apply the key tenets of Design Thinking to their craft to help them increase value to stakeholders and benefits to their organizations.
At a discounted rate of $199 for PMI members and $249 for non-members, come learn, practice, and enhance fundamental Design Thinking skills in this workshop to utilize and apply its key principles to your organization. Those attending will receive 13 PDUs and a certificate of completion/Digital Badge for Design Thinking.
For member discounts, PMI Hudson Valley and Long Island chapters must register using their PMI member number and special discount code. Contact your chapter for details!
