Economic & Cultural Context of Design (Online - 2 of 5)
This course surveys the broader economic and social context in which design leaders work. We examine salient phenomena and concepts such as automation, agility, and resilience and discuss how they affect business and design practices. Students develop thought leadership around select topics to influence strategic conversations within their organizations and in their industries. This is one of the five that courses are part of the Design Leadership for Business Certificate but is open to all students wishing to learn about design thinking. Students pursuing the certificate should take Design Thinking Fundamentals first and Futures and Foresight as the conclusion.
