Description

Leaders and organizations today need new ways and skill sets to solve complex challenges and to seize opportunities faster. Incorporating design thinking into employee training can help solve this challenge.

Combining analytical and intuitive thinking, the design thinking process reshapes companies and people, and embeds new creative problem-solving capabilities, so they can continuously address emerging, and often poorly understood, shifts in customer needs, technology, and the competitive environment.

Join Greg Warman, co-founder of ExperiencePoint and Andrew Webster, VP of Transformation to learn:
  • Why the role of learning and development professionals is more important than ever in helping build innovation capabilities and transforming organizations
  • The tools and methods to enable organization-wide innovation and transformation
  • The three essential steps to getting started with design thinking


About Greg Warman

ExperiencePoint co-founder Greg Warman believes every organization has the ability to innovate — if they can awaken the problem-solving capabilities that exist in their people. He believes that design thinking — a human-centered approach to innovation that leverages empathy and experimentation to arrive at breakthrough solutions — is the key to making that happen.

Warman has dedicated the past two decades of his career teaching leaders and people at Fortune 500 companies, government agencies, and global non-profits how to leverage design thinking to unlock innovation capabilities, drive transformation and customer-centricity, and to imagine new solutions to complex problems. He’s introduced this mission-critical approach and toolkit to teams at Google, Ford Motor Company, Habitat for Humanity, the U.S. Air Force and many more of the world’s leading and most innovative companies.

Warman’s passion for teaching design thinking began early in his career. After receiving his bachelors of commerce honours from Queen’s University in Canada, he pursued courses in design thinking at Stanford University’s renowned d.school and earned a master’s degree in Learning Design and Technology from its Graduate School of Education.

The d.school was founded by David Kelley — a global leader in design thinking — who also founded the global design and innovation company, IDEO. While at Stanford, Warman landed an internship with Kelley at IDEO, and later developed a partnership between ExperiencePoint and IDEO that continues to this day.

When he’s not teaching, Warman spends his time brainstorming how to get people to Mars with his wife, a NASA Mars researcher, or taking his kids on weekend hang-gliding adventures in the San Francisco Bay Area where they live.
