Join us for this Immersive Design Thinking workshop at AUC New Cairo and Mountain View!

Design Thinking is a human-centered innovation framework adopted by fortune 500 companies, including Apple, IBM, P&G, Airbnb, and JP Morgan, among many others.

Design Thinking teams follow an iterative process to discover user needs, struggles and aspirations and design user-centered solutions that are technically feasible and financially viable.

Teams will work on the following challenge statement: "How might we reimagine the retail experience to stimulate customer engagement in a context where retail clutter and monotony of experience create a sense of indifference and apathy among individuals and families?"
