Backstory:

In an era of mind-boggling complexity and turbo-charged change, we need to rewire how we think. Don’t ‘ya think?

By now, you may know that “thinking about how we think” is a daily occurance here at Screwbeall Universe City—not to mention the fact that thinking different (crowd-thinking) is part and parcel to the EarthBrain planet of Screwball.

One “mode” of thinking is Design Thinking. It’s a creative process that takes into account the context of a problem, and applies a special kind of rationality to delivering a solution to the problem. It has historically been limited to engineering and design—but that’s changing. Many are recognizing the applicability of the process in other 21st century disciplines—including your life.

About February 8th:

If you attended Icarus Session CLE-1 on January 2nd, you witnessed (or participated in) an exercise that involved sharing your ”art” (i.e., the work you’re meant to do and why it matters to the world). During Icarus-CLE-1.2 on January 11th, Ken Chapin (CEO of Mobile Innovation Lab) offered to conduct a design Thinking Workshop at Icarus-CLE-2 on February 8th.

More about the workshop:

Building from the Icarus Sessions, Ken Chapin, Founder and CEO of Mobile Innovation Lab will be facilitating a workshop to introduce participants to the Design Thinking methodology and give them a basic understanding of its practical application in innovation.  Participants will engage in collective inquiry around the challenges they face and design prototyped solutions to address what matters to them most. You’ll also learn a thing or two about adaptive thinking—complements Screwball Universe City.
