Rangimārie Mules.

Problem-solving and innovation has been part of our story as Māori for generations; from Tāne Mahuta who sought to bring the first human form into the world as Hineahuone, to Māui Tikitiki-a-Taranga who restrained the sun, brought fire into the world and searched for immortality. These pūrākau are gifts from our tūpuna that construct a platform of innovation in which we can launch ourselves into the world of design thinking.

Through design thinking we will explore our abilities to be intuitive, to recognise patterns, to construct ideas that are emotionally meaningful as well as functional, and to express ourselves through means beyond words. This webinar will introduce you to design thinking as a deeply human process which taps into our abilities as designers that often get overlooked by more conventional problem-solving practices. Design thinking provides us with a structure in which to engage our people in a creative process of innovation, social change and solution-based thinking.
