How might we best educate designers and build educational capacity within an enterprise setting? 

Enterprises around the world face a common problem: A severe shortage of interaction designers. 

Formal design programs do not have the capacity to graduate enough students to meet industry demand. Industry is largely unprepared or unable to educate interaction designers on the job. 

Enterprises must take a lead role in building educational capacity within organizations as part of the solution. 

This workshop aims to answer the question and address the problem. 

Participants will: 
- Contribute to the body of knowledge and community of practice for our field 
- Learn and practice a proven toolkit of facilitation methods for strategic change, analysis, and decision-making in complex multi-stakeholder environments like the enterprise. 


1. An open-source education resource of models, frameworks, and methods for the community to adopt, iterate, and evolve 
2. Participants will learn strategic facilitation methods that they can apply immediately upon returning to their workplaces.
