Speculative Design for Innovation Workshop: Future-Proof Your Business

Thursday, May 12, 2022 | 6:00 PM-7:00 PM
Part 4 of a 4 Part Series

Design thinking is a popular tool, however, it often only leads to slight improvements on an existing design. How might we deliberately cultivate practices that stop us from optimizing the past, and instead, help us to envision the future we want to approach? Speculative Design is a toolkit for innovation that considers possible futures for technology, society, and business.

Throughout this workshop series, participants will learn how to harness the tools of speculative design for creating true innovation in their field. They will explore a variety of trends and technologies, learn about different applications of speculative design, and generate several prototypes of possible futures.

In this Speculative Design for Innovation Workshop Future-Proof Your Business, participants will explore the trend that they are most curious about as it relates to their business or a business of their choice. We will apply the tool of speculative design to prototype an innovative product or service for that business 10-15 years into the future.

You are welcome to attend even if you missed the previous workshops in this series!
