As part of the All Island Innovation programme series of Master Classes, the School of Management & Marketing, UCC are delighted to announce the next in the current series of industry focused innovation events.  This will take place on June 30th 2016 and address the topic of Design Thinking.  This innovation event will be delivered by Dr. Lawrence Dooley (http://research.ucc.ie/profiles/B005/ldooley) and Dr Paidi O'Reilly (https://www.linkedin.com/in/paidioreilly) from the Cork University Business School.


The event will consist of a Design Thinking master class which will provide an overview of the topic and its application for industry, followed by a workshop (for those who wish to stay on) where we will endeavor to have participants apply some of its elements.  

Both events are free to attend but due to space constraints (especially for the workshop), advanced booking is required.  Further specifics of the events is detailed below.


MasterClass 1- Thursday 9.00am-11.00am: O'Rahilly Building Room 2.55


Design Thinking: Leveraging customer empathy to identify hidden needs



Design thinking is a formal method for practical, creative resolution of problems and creation of solutions, with the intent of an improved future result. In this regard it is a form of solution-based, or solution-focused thinking – starting with a goal (a better future situation) instead of solving a specific problem.  This master class introduces the approach and how industry can enhance its innovative potential through customer centred design



Workshop- Thursday 11.30am- 2.30pm
