SWARM is excited to be sponsoring season 3 of the podcast Cut Your Learning Curve, a podcast about learning and the intersection of work and technology. In this season Nate Cooper, managing partner at SWARM is joined by Eve MacKnight, Director of Learning to discuss topics pertinent to life and work in our digital age.
In this episode, we discuss Design Thinking.
We all have an app on our phone that we love. Yet what design thinking has not been able to solve, and in some ways has made worse, are the deeper, structural problems facing people today – namely, inequality, lack of opportunity and a global crisis in public health. If design is to be truly empathetic, as so many designers claim, I hope design thinking moves beyond making a more intuitive Spotify to take up these bigger challenges.
