Web Directions South 2010, Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre, October 14 11.45am.

Presentation slides

Session description

Many web professionals practice creative, collaborative and inclusive approaches to our work. As UX designers, information architects, strategists, or programmers — we are all designers, and we are ready equipped with a way of problem solving that can be applied to challenges that are not tradi­tionally those of web practitioners.

From the perspective of the digital domain this session will take a look at what Design Thinking is and it’s potential to amplify creativity so that we may embrace and apply our skills to the messy problems that business, government and society face every day.
