Design Thinking Ghana Conference To Be Organized On August 21, 2020.
The Design Thinking Ghana Conference 2020 (DTGC2020) is planned to take place virtually on Friday, 21st August 2020.
The Design Thinking Ghana Conference (DTGC) is Africa’s first Design Thinking conference. The goal of the conference is to bring attention to Design Thinking as a strategic problem solving and innovation approach, provide a platform for presentations on the application of this methodology in industry and point the audience to ways in which they can be more successful if they apply the insights and knowledge from the conference.
The Design Thinking Ghana Hub will be holding its annual premier and 5-Year Anniversary Design Thinking Ghana Conference (DTGC2020) online.
This year’s DTGC2020 is dubbed, “Building a DT Toolkit for Innovation in Times of Adversity”. The conference will provide an overview of design thinking workshop training in this new era and also share lessons and insights from the 8 weeks online toolkit training.
In addition to the guest speakers, the facilitators from the training program will share their experiences and lessons as they navigated Zoom breakout rooms to teach people the approach that has been found to make the most impact on collecting, understanding and analysing user needs in order to make competitive and strategic decisions in unusual circumstances such as during this coronavirus outbreak.
The Toolkit Training program was an online training that leveraged on Zoom’s capabilities to imitate the in-person workshop setting which allowed us to take the participants through 8 different design thinking approaches from defining the problem to prototyping and testing for successful results.
The conference has two sessions thus Morning from 10 am to 12 pm and Afternoon from 2 pm to 4 pm via zoom. Registration is now opened and you can register to participate here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSctcEgsofWhbEytDrF5jZI_esLRjgZNwCURwO-RA5N13-fSBg/viewform
