This episode is about a question behind almost everything people do as they create growth and opportunity by seeing and solving like a designer.
In these short Ask Like a Designer episodes on the Design Thinking 101 podcast, you’ll find new ways to explore the show’s stories and ideas about design-driven innovation. I’ll share methods, templates, and ideas that have worked in my practice in teaching.
