In this self-paced, online course, Framing: Creating Better Solutions by Finding More Valuable Problems to Solve, you will learn to create more effective solutions by understanding the problem you are trying to solve.

Creating effective solutions begins with understanding the problem we are trying to solve. Is this problem worth solving? Where should we look to understand our problem? What’s happening inside this problem? How do we define the problem? How do we adjust problem framing as we go? During the course, you will learn to answer these questions and apply them to your work.

Ask Like a Designer

In Ask Like a Designer, I share design ideas, methods, frameworks, templates, and a question-fueled approach to design-driven innovation. Ask Like a Designer is geared toward action. Each article gives you things to start using today. I hope to help you find new ways to see and solve problems like a designer. Cheers ~ Dawan
