Design Thinking is from Mars, Lean Startup is from Venus? When to Teach Which, and When They Reinforce Each Other

Workshop attendees will actively explore which methodology is effective in what kinds of projects and scenarios. During the session, attendees will work together to develop a lesson plan straddling the intersection of Design Thinking and Lean Startup. Examples will highlight how a growing number of courses and programs integrate both into a cohesive and comprehensive learning trajectory that spans defining and creatively solving tough problems and scaling the impact, whether that be in a startup, a large company, a non-profit, in higher education, or in the public sector.
