The Other Design Thinking

Elizabeth Pastor

About this video


Upstream from poster, product and service creation there is a new breed of design firm working with changemaking leaders to frame challenges, recognize opportunities, cocreate solutions, and help cross-disciplinary teams work effectively together. The Other Design Thinking involves much more sensemaking upfront and that train is already on the tracks and rolling. Pastor will talk about the work that Humantific is doing and spell out an invitation to other practice leaders working in the same universe as part of their upcoming book: The Other Design Thinking: What the heck is it? What does it do?
