Jan. 27 Webinar: An Introduction to Design Thinking for Risk Managers

January 12, 2016

ASHRM is partnering with the Risk Authority Stanford to introduce risk managers to the concept of Design Thinking. This model for innovation and problem-solving, now taught in America’s top MBA programs, complements traditional approaches to risk mitigation. Design thinking will help you uncover unmet needs and create targeted solutions that will have a sustainable, measurable impact.

This webinar will draw from experiences applying the Design Thinking approach at Stanford Medicine. The presenter will reveal how this approach can be used at each stage of the risk management cycle to enhance improvement work. 

Register for this webinar and learn the principles and methodologies of Design Thinking and how it can be applied to some of the thorniest risk management challenges facing patients and clinicians.
