    J Schuh's workshop brings clients into the classroom to bring real problems for our students. The idea is that companies and organizations must innovate and optimize customer experiences to remain competitive and relevant, and many use Design Thinking methodologies to create and deliver both quality and value. Design Thinking methodology provides a solution-based approach to create customer-centric products, services, and experiences by observing and engaging stakeholders in problem-solving strategies.
