    Fostering Design Thinking as a Project Manager
    Speaker: Amanda Maness
    Tuesday, April 16th, PMI Monthly Dinner Meeting
    Crescent Club - 6pm - 7:45pm
      
    Incorporating Design Thinking with project management concepts can be daunting because it involves human centered activities that may seem disruptive of the structured process we value as project managers.  In this talk, Amanda will share how to incorporate various techniques of design thinking into how we interact with stakeholders and strive for creative solutions to complex problems in an ever increasing lean environment.
