    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.

    Workshop Activities and Mural Boards

    This online workspace allows the teams to use the UX framework to work together through the various exercises that create their UX artifacts. These many exercises use the framework that lead to their final presentations. Our timed activities are designed like an executive workshop where we maximize stakeholders time. We also try to make the classes entertaining as well as educational with icebreakers interspersed.
