Design Thinking Workshop: From Insights to Innovation offers the chance to learn the basics of design thinking — a human-centered, prototype-driven process for innovation that can be applied to product, service, and business design. We believe that innovation is necessary in every aspect of business, and that it can be taught.
This session will be led by OTA CEO Hugh Weber and special guest, Ludvik Herrera.

He is IDeaspace's creative director at NDSU, where he practices and facilitates the design thinking methodology to foster innovation and collaboration in students, faculty, staff and community at large. His focus is in the areas where technology, innovation, and creativity crosspaths with design thinking through discerning human-based aesthetics.
