Description

Guest Presenters/Facilitators:

Eoin Carroll (Lead Software Architect) and Rosie Martin (Senior Design Manager) at IBM Watson Health.

Focus:

Participative Workshop sharing insights from IBM Health Corps and techniques used in IBM Design Thinking.

Background:

Design Thinking is a user-centered technique for finding innovative solutions to complex problems. This hands-on workshop gives a taste of some of the activities which form part of IBM Design Thinking. It will cover how the process is used as part of IBM's global pro-bono Health Corps programme, which aims to tackle health disparities.

Rosie will lead a hands-on Design Thinking workshop enabling participants to experience and learn some of the techniques involved in IBM Design Thinking.

Eoin will describe the IBM Health Corps pro bono programme, focusing on the assignment in which he participated earlier this year. This assignment involved using Design Thinking when working with several community based non profits and public service groups to solve a real-world challenge.

Everyone welcome! You don't need any previous experience of Design Thinking.
