More about Kim

"Design thinking is far more than a method — it is a holistic mindset, that changes the way you see the world. By practicing being human-centered in everything you do, you learn to challenge your own assumptions, be open to embrace ambiguity and push for truly sustainable change. Design thinking is a team sport, and it challenges our collaboration muscles at a new level, allowing participants to create more than the sum of its parts and crafting profoundly novel solutions to wicked problems."
