Industry Collaborator Program

The Wond’ry Industry Collaborator Program is designed for any business or work unit on the campus who are looking to solve their problems creatively. Led by Prof. David Owens, author of “Creative People Must Be Stopped: 6 Ways We Kill Innovation”, the program is fully customizable to meet each client’s needs and availability. The program takes the clients through the design thinking process starting with finding the right problem through empathy and clearly defining the problem and moves onto ideation sessions including brainstorming, prototyping, testing, and iteration for rapid learning and improvement.
