Design thinking — a process for building simpler processes for more complex issues — is catching on in many industries and in many urban centers across the country.
In this month’s Podcast, we check in with Natalie Nixon, who runs an MBA program at Philadelphia University that teaches design thinking to students from a wide range of fields, to see what design thinking is all about.
We also chat with Brooklyn reporter Brady Dale about how design culture is spreading from the borough to the larger business community.
