Designed for Impact: How Design Thinking Helps Networks Take on Complex Challenges

Summary

In this Synergy Commons webinar, Mark Avery shows how design thinking tools can help networks better understand their work’s context, increase engagement, strengthen collaboration, and improve the probability of finding a viable solution by creating a shared understanding of:

  • The context or system your network is trying to impact
  • How things work in this context, and
  • How you can work together to change the outcomes.

This webinar is a 90-minute, hands-on, workshop-style webinar in which participants had a chance to work together through a scenario using a design thinking process. Breakout discussion sessions have been removed from the video to make it easier to watch.
